Curriculum for Excellence

In our 3 to 5 area, we use the Curriculum for Excellence to support our planning and recording of the children's development.

The Curriculum for Excellence is for children and young people aged from3 years to 18 years and is designed to give children skills and knowledge that will benefit them in life and learning.

The curriculum is made up of 'Experiences and Outcomes' across 8 curriculum areas:

  • Language and Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Expressive Arts
  • Social Studies
  • Technology
  • Science
  • RME

The curriculum for excellence is designed to allow children to become: successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors. This involves children's attitudes and motivation to learn as well as respecting themselves and others.

Every child has an individual learning portfolio which allows contributions from their Keyworker, Their Parents/ Carers and from the child themselves. These portfolios allow the Keyworker to track their development through regular observations and plan next steps, ensuring that the children are challenged and able to learn at their own level.
