Curriculum Links

The core capacities of Curriculum for Excellence and the underpinning principles form the foundation of high quality Learning and Teaching. Learners who are engaged and active participants in their learning will achieve the shared vision and goals which underpin Health and Wellbeing for All.

Making these links is crucial in the development of Health Promoting Schools and these should be acknowledged in the audit process.
