Curriculum for Excellence is Scotland’s response to an ever-more challenging and fast-changing world and workplace. It aims to raise standards and increase ambition. Change, as ambitious and far reaching as this, takes time and as parents of Dalziel pupils, we want to involve you in each development stage.
Broad General Education is one of the key terms used in Curriculum for Excellence. Each area of the curriculum in Broad General Education is broken down into experiences and outcomes often called Es & Os. The E’s & O’s describe the expectations for learning and progression within each curriculum area.

Any parents/guardians wishing to apply for free school meals or clothing grants can download an application form via www.northlanarkshire.go.uk/freeschoolmeals or collect a form from the School Office.
Any parents/guardians who applied last year should have either been sent a letter advising them of their entitlement and automatic award or an application form for completion.
Applications relating to the new term will be accepted by First Stop Shops from the first week in May. Early submissions are encouraged to ensure clothing grants are made and free school meals are registered for the start of the new session.
The examination results across the school have improved again, and this year show the best results ever for our school.
In particular, there has been a substantial increase in the number of pupils passing Higher exams in S5.
It is great to see all the hard work and commitment of pupils and staff paying off with improved pass rates.

Dalziel High School PTA is launching its annual Christmas Raffle. The PTA do an outstanding job each year raising funds for the school, all of which get put back into the school. These help with buying additional resources which will benefit your child. This is one of the PTA’s biggest fund raisers and would not be successful without your continued support.
