S5W-15271: Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 14 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many schools have adopted alternative models of teaching under the curriculum for excellence, and what its position is on this figure.

Answered by: John Swinney 22 March 2018

The Scottish Government does not hold this information on a school-by-school basis. However, there are a range of emerging and innovative models to support delivery of the curriculum.

Curriculum for Excellence gives schools the flexibility to offer different and innovative approaches, enabling them to meet each young person’s needs in a range of ways. There is no one approach to delivering CfE, as long as the school and education authority have a clear and robust educational rationale for their approach and they continue to work closely with their partners and parents to inform, shape and develop their approach to support the individual needs and aspirations of all learners.
