Our Curriculum is the totality of all the learning and teaching experiences that are planned for our students across their time at Lasswade High School. Our curriculum helps us to fulfil our School Mission.
School Mission Statement: ‘Lasswade High School is committed to nurturing, inspiring and empowering our students and staff to learn, progress and achieve at the very highest standard. We believe in our values; creativity, effort, kindness and respect, and work together as a community to provide all our students with opportunities to succeed and reach their goals. Our school leavers are equipped and ready to contribute positively and embrace the challenges of being a local, national and international citizen.’
Our curriculum is underpinned by our school values; Creativity, Effort, Kindness and Respect, to help ensure a shared clarity of purpose.
Lasswade High School is a unique school with world class facilities. We use local, national and international labour market intelligence to plan courses to best prepare our young people for life beyond school, underpinned by the national Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) agenda.
We recognise that to provide our young people with rich and varied learning experiences in a range of contexts it is crucial to work in partnerships with others and to offer a wide range of qualifications. We are regularly reviewing our curriculum offer and are broadening our offer by increasing our suite of qualifications to include more SCQF level courses. You can find out more about these qualifications here: scqf.org.uk.
Expertise often lies beyond the school and learning opportunities are regularly planned with partner organisations including; statutory and voluntary organisations as well as employers, colleges, Universities and other partners supported by our Regional DYW team.
Lasswade High School aims to ensure that all young people experience an inclusive learning environment that supports all our students to achieve a positive and sustained post-school destination. To this end, we strive for excellence in attainment and achievement for all, as well as ensuring an equitable approach and an inclusive curriculum that reflects the changing needs of our community, young people and the skills required for a dynamic workforce.
