The Nursery Curriculum

What is Curriculum for Excellence?

The purpose of  Curriculum for Excellence is to improve the learning, attainment and achievement of children and young people in Scotland. 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.

Curriculum for Excellence encourages more learning through experiences and creates a single framework for the curriculum and assessment 3-18.
The Curriculum is divided into different levels. We will be working on the Early Level which starts in nursery and continues into Primary One.

Curriculum for Excellence aims to focus practice upon the child and around the four capacities of education:

We aim to help to children to  become:

  • Successful Learners
  •  Confident Individuals
  • Responsible Citizens
  • Effective Contributors

Curriculum for Excellence has eight subject areas:

  • Literacy and English
  • Numeracy and Mathematics
  • Expressive Arts
  • Sciences
  • Religious and Moral Education
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Social Studies
  • Technologies

Through careful planning and observation we will support your child's learning and development.  As parents we will involve you in each stage of your child's learning.
