A Parents' Guide to Curriculum for Excellence

Curriculum for Excellence is the new guidance on the curriculum that schools are now introducing.

This document lays out guidelines on not only what children should learn, but how they should learn and by when.

We no longer will be working with the familiar 5-14 levels, but rather children will work their way through Early, First, Second, Third and Fourth Levels. Each level takes around three years to complete starting in nursery.

We will be basing our planning on a range of Experiences and Outcomes in 8 areas of the curriculm and changing the way we report to you to reflect these changes.
