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.

Scholar is an e-learning education programme from Heriot-Watt University with pupils having access to 19 Higher and 12 Advanced Higher Subjects. The Scholar programme is designed to encourage student independant learning supported by their class teacher.
All S4-S6 pupils studying Higher or Advanced Higher subjects within the school have been provided with their own password.
