The Curriculum

Curriculum for Excellence

‘Bringing learning to life and life to learning’

Teachers and practitioners will share information to plan a child’s ‘learning journey’ from 3-18, helping their progression from nursery to primary, primary to secondary and beyond, ensuring each transition is smooth. They’ll ensure children continue to work at a pace they can cope with and with challenge they can thrive on.

Every child is entitled to a broad and deep general education, whatever their level and ability. Every single teacher and practitioner will be responsible for the development of literacy and numeracy from Early Level through to Senior Phase.

CFE Levels

It develops skills for learning, life and work, bringing real life into the classroom, making learning relevant and helping young people apply lessons to their life beyond the classroom. It links knowledge in one subject area to another helping make connections in their learning. It develops skills which can enable children to think for themselves, make sound judgements, challenge, enquire and find solutions.

Ultimately, Curriculum for Excellence aims to improve our children’s life chances, to nurture successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors, and responsible citizens, building on Scotland’s reputation for great education.

The areas of the curriculum included within our pupils ‘learning journey’ are Languages; Mathematics; Social Studies; Sciences; Expressive Arts; Religious and Moral Education; Technologies and Health and Wellbeing.

Broughton is committed to engaging with the new curriculum through our staff curriculum development programme and Continuing Professional Development.
