What is Curriculum for Excellence? Scotland’s curriculum – Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) – helps our children and young people gain the knowledge, skills and attributes needed for life in the 21st century.

Benchmarks The Curriculum for Excellence Benchmarks set out clear statements about what learners need to know and be able to do to achieve a level across a curricular area.

Experiences and Outcomes Experiences and outcomes ​​(often called Es+Os) are a set of clear and concise statements about children’s learning and progression in each curriculum area. They are used to help plan learning and to assess progress.

Principles and Practice  The principles and practice documents are essential reading for practitioners as they begin, and then develop, their work with the statements of experiences and outcomes. Each document sets out the purposes of learning within a particular curriculum area, describes how the experiences are organised, and offers guidance on aspects such as learning and teaching, broad features of assessment, progression and connections with other areas of the curriculum.
