Scots is a part of the Curriculum for Excellence. The language features more prominently in Scottish schools than at any time in the last thirty years.

Studying Scots can have a positive impact on a pupil's development as a confident individual, successful learner and responsible citizen.

It is now accepted by many in the teaching profession that offering rich opportunities to develop pupils' creative writing skills in Scots can have a transformative effect on literacy and learning for a large number of children and young people.
