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.

Please find below the report from our recent review of the Customer Service Excellence Award 2014. The report is very positive and is testament to the work done by our school every day.
We have retained the Customer Service Excellence Award with a glowing report , no categories marked as only Partial Compliance and an increase to five categories marked as Compliance Plus ( defined as ' Behaviours or practices which exceed the requirements of the standard and are viewed as exceptional or as an exemplar to others, either within the applicant's organisation or the wider public service arena').
This is a fantastic achievement for our school.
On days when school is closed due to inclement weather, pupils can continue learning when there is disruption. Materials such as past exam papers, study guides and other teaching aids can be accessed on-line, see links below:
