    S4/5 Curriculum Pathway




    Dear Parent/Carer, 

    I am delighted to introduce this year’s Curriculum Pathway for courses in S5/6. Your child has already begun to build up their Senior Phase portfolio of qualifications and achievements and it is time to review progress and choose next steps in their curriculum pathway. A few pupils will move on at the end of S4 or S5 into a positive destination in employment, training or Further/Higher Education. However, most will continue at school for one or two more years. To support them in their journey, we offer a wide range of courses that will enable your child to fulfil their potential their potential.  

    The Curriculum Pathways booklet provides information about the courses we offer in S5/6. Choosing the most appropriate route is a matter that each learner will wish to discuss with you at home, and the information in this booklet is designed to assist you with the decision-making process. Parents/Carers have a big influence on what our pupils choose to do so it is important that you are aware of all the opportunities/options open to them. The National Parent Forum of Scotland have produced a document ‘Learner journey in a nutshell’ which is a good starting point for all parents.  


    As with all Curriculum Pathway processes, we must emphasise that not all courses listed will necessarily run. This will depend on staffing, accommodation and pupil uptake. However, it is our intention to provide as many opportunities as we can to enable your child to follow the pathway that is the most appropriate for them. 

    All pupils MUST complete their Online Options (Green button below) and return Curriculum Pathways Option Form to school (in documents section below).  All details are in the presentation.

    All pupils in S5/6 will also select a Wider Achievement Opportunity (WAO), which they will study for two periods per week. Pupils will select this later in this academic session. 

    In addition to the wide range of curriculum pathways offered at Levenmouth Academy, our college partnership with Fife College provides additional opportunities for our young people. More information on courses can be found in the presentation or booklet.

    Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Pupil Support Teacher at any time if you have any questions. It is essential that pupils start their courses in June with enthusiasm, commitment and the determination to succeed and achieve their personal best. All pupils will receive assistance, advice, encouragement and support as they strive to realise their full potential and make the most of the opportunities available to them.
