Curriculum for Excellence


Curriculum for Excellence 
Curriculum for Excellence is Scotland’s curriculum for children and young people aged 3 to 18.
The early level of Curriculum for Excellence spans pre-school and primary as it is designed to meet the needs of most children from 3 years until the end of Primary 1, thus promoting better continuity and progression of learning across the sectors. Many of the core messages of Curriculum for Excellence relate to the importance of:
  • active, experiential learning
  • a holistic approach to learning
  • smooth transitions
  • learning through play
Parents and carers have a key role to play in the success of Curriculum for Excellence in terms of ensuring that they support their children’s learning in partnership with staff.

It is important that parents and carers are aware that Curriculum for Excellence is flexible and meaningful, promotes real-life learning and focuses on the needs of every child and young person.
