Curriculum for Excellence

Reference from Education Scotland

The purpose of the programme is to improve the learning, attainment and achievement of children and young people in Scotland. It is also about ensuring that pupils achieve on a broad front, not just in terms of examinations. It is important to ensure that children and young people are acquiring the full range of skills and abilities relevant to growing, living and working in the contemporary world. Curriculum for Excellence aims to ensure that they will enjoy greater choice and opportunity to help realise their individual talents.

An extensive programme of discussion is under way with education authorities and headteachers, which is involving engagement with young people and parents.

The report A Curriculum for Excellence has created a unified set of purposes and principles for the whole curriculum in Scotland, throughout the early years, primary school and secondary school
