Curriculum for Excellence


The purpose of the Curriculum for Excellence is to enable each child to become a successful learner, a confident individual, a responsible citizen and an effective contributor.

Curricular Areas

Learning experiences cover each of the curricular areas: Health and Wellbeing, Literacy, Numeracy, Expressive Arts, Social Studies, Religious and Moral Education, Science and Technology.


Carefully planned learning experiences provide challenge and enjoyment, breadth, progression, depth, personalisation and choice, coherence and relevance.


The Curriculum for Excellence is underpinned by the values inscribed on the mace of the Scottish Parliament: Wisdom, Justice, Compassion and Integrity.
