At Larbert High School we deliver education through the framework of the Scottish Governement's Curriculum For Excellence. For more information on CfE please see the dedicated CfE page of the website which gives more information about CfE overall and more specific information about CfE in the junior phase (S1-S3).

At LHS we recognise that there are many different routes to success for our young people. Larbert High School supports all our young people to move into a positive and sustained destination from school. In order to help pupils get on the right path for their destination we have created a dedicated Learner Journeys website which gives information and support on everything from choosing a course to jobs and training opportunities.
Careers and College
We have provided a downloadable version of our curriculum plan which covers information on how pupils timetables are made up from S1-S6. A condensed version can be viewed in the images below but we advise parents to consult the full PDF document for more information.
Learning and Teaching
Our school's Learning and Teaching policy is available to download here.
Homework is designed to encourage pupils to practise new learning and reinforce taught skills.
Homework tasks will encourage a broad range of skills: written, oral and practical.
Parents are encouraged to share in the completion of homework tasks, this will support a sound understanding of pupils learning in school.
Skills for Life and Work
LHS promotes the development of skills for life and work through our LHS Skills Framework which is embedded into learning and teaching throughout the school in a variety of ways. We also record and celebrate skills achievements through the Optimum Award for pupils.
Sensitive Aspects of Learning
Sex education is not only informative and an essential part of each child’s education, but it is taught with sensitivity and understanding throughout the school in a co-ordinated programme of Health & Well Being.
Religious Instruction and Observance
Parents who wish to exercise their right to withdraw their child from religious instruction and/or observance should contact the head teacher, in writing, and alternative arrangements will be made for your child.
