Kinnaird Primary School
The opening of a brand new school has provided a rare opportunity for the staff of Kinnaird Primary School to make fundamental decisions about what they want to teach and how they want to teach it. They believe that ‘Storyline’ will be extremely useful in helping them implement the major curricular change happening within Scottish education at this time, particularly in relation to curriculum flexibility and cross-curricular working. Steve Bell and Sallie Harkness began their Storyline journey by delivering a one-day course for the whole staff on 15 February 2008. Teaching and non-teaching staff alike thoroughly enjoyed their day and are already putting what they learned into practice. The school was keen to ensure that parents also had an understanding of what Storyline was about. Headteacher, Pamela Adamson, delivered the same one-day course for parents on 7 March 2008.Their evaluations highlighted their enjoyment of the day, and the benefits to them in supporting their children’s learning at home through their increased understanding.
