Curriculum for Excellence

Curriculum for Excellence aims to achieve a transformation in education in Scotland by providing a coherent, more flexible and enriched curriculum from 3 to 18.

Learners are entitled to a curriculum that includes a range of features at the different stages of learning. The entitlements ensure that children and young people are provided with continuous opportunities to develop skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.

All children and young people in Scotland have an entitlement to a curriculum which will support them in developing their values and beliefs and enable them to:
•achieve the highest possible levels of literacy and numeracy and cognitive skills
•develop skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work
•develop knowledge and understanding of society, the world and Scotland's place in it
•experience challenge and success so that they can develop well-informed views and act responsibly.

This should enable and motivate learners to develop to their fullest across the four capacities

The title "experiences and outcomes" recognises the importance of the quality and nature of the learning experience in developing attributes and capabilities and in achieving active engagement, motivation and depth of learning. An outcome represents what is to be achieved.

Larkfield Children's Centre Planning

At Larkfield Children's Centre staff consult with children then develop planning on a monthly basis covering the eight curricular areas. The children's thoughts and ideas on a topic help us establish prior knowledge then to effectively plan learning to develop their skills fully.

Evidence of children's learning is available in their profiles which are freely available just outside the 3-5 playroom.

Our Learning Wall allows us to share the learning outcomes that we will be focusing on for the current month and further additional information. We are always grateful for comments or suggestions.

Further information about Curriculum for Excellence is available on the "Education Scotland" website or can be downloaded from our links.
