Learning for Life

At Capability Scotland we understand that children learn best when they are in an environment that is responsive to their needs and that is what we have created at Corseford School.

Pupil centred learning

Each child at Corseford, follows an individualised programme, tailored to their specific needs which consists of education, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and health care as required.

Curriculum for Excellence

Corseford follows the National Guidelines of Curriculum for Excellence. However, as per Scottish Government guidelines, our curriculum is flexible allowing for greater emphasis to be placed on communication, English, maths, health and wellbeing and social skills when necessary.

Age appropriate education

The school has primary, secondary and senior phase departments and children move through the school with an appropriate peer group.

The balance of the curriculum changes as pupils move through the school in response to their changing needs and in line with the wellbeing indicators of Getting it Right for Every Child.

In secondary school, pupils have access to a broad range of subjects including; Spanish, science, social studies, art, music and drama and have the opportunity to obtain SQA national qualifications.

The senior phase provides an appropriate setting for older students to further develop their skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.  The programme is tailored around preparing pupils for independent living and there are opportunities for work experience and taster days at a local college.
