Learning for Sustainability

Learning for Sustainability (LfS) is an approach to learning, life and work.  It enables learners, educators, schools and their wider communities to build a socially-just, sustainable and equitable society.  LfS is fully embedded in the General Teaching Council Scotland’s professional standards and is recognised as an entitlement for all learners. 

We aim for an effective whole school and community approach to LfS which weaves together global citizenship, sustainable development education, outdoor learning and children’s rights.  Our Brunstane curriculum, Building Resilience Programme and Pupil Parliament aim to create rich, real-life learning experiences.
