In Crookfur Nursery Class we offer children a broad general education in line with Curriculum for Excellence to help them develop as individuals. Curriculum for Excellence brings learning to life in the way education is delivered for all 3-18 year olds – in nursery, primary, secondary, at college, workplace or community learning. It takes a fresh approach to what, how and where young people learn. It aims to raise standards, improve knowledge and develop skills, closing the gap between the lowest and highest performers. Ultimately it aims to nurture young people as successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens, focussing on the eight curricular areas: language (including French) and literacy; mathematics and numeracy; health & wellbeing; religious & moral education; technologies; sciences; social studies and expressive arts.
Curriculum for Excellence is all about bringing real life into the playroom and taking learning beyond it. Experiences and outcomes have been prepared in every subject area. The needs of each individual child are catered for regardless of their ability, level, gender or race. Our key goal is that each and every child will achieve their true potential.
The Curriculum is planned from 3 – 18, with 5 levels of attainment:
Early Level: the pre-school years and P1, or later for some.
First Level: to the end of P4, but earlier or later for some.
Second Level: to the end of P7, but earlier or later for some.
Third and Fourth Level: S1 to S3, but earlier for some.
