A Curriculum for Excellence makes it clear that teachers have not only opportunity but also responsibility to introduce educational activities that will help develop their pupils’ understanding and appreciation of spiritual perspectives, as well as promoting the four core values – wisdom, justice, compassion and integrity. These web pages are intended to share existing good practice and to provide inspiration to teachers who wish to use the opportunities offered by the Curriculum for Excellence to develop spiritual insights.
One of the aims of ‘A Curriculum for Excellence’ is to ‘declutter’ the curriculum and give individual schools and teachers scope for creativity and flexibility in the selection of topics for pupils to study.
CARE for Scotland believes that A Curriculum for Excellence gives teachers fresh scope for bringing faith dimensions into all areas of the curriculum.
Through this web site you can have access to case studies from schools around Scotland where fellow teachers have developed ideas to encourage spiritual development.
We would value your comments on how useful you have found these case studies.
If you would llike to submit your own case study, please contact CARE for Scotland by e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org.
