Curriculum

The Purpose of the Curriculum
The purpose of the curriculum is encapsulated in the four capacities – to enable each child or young person to be a successful learner, a confident individual, a responsible citizen and an effective contributor.

The curriculum aims to ensure that all children and young people in Scotland develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need if they are to flourish in life, learning and work, now and in the future.

Principles
The curriculum should be designed on the basis of the following principles:

Challenge and enjoyment
Breadth
Progression
Depth
Personalisation and choice
Coherence
Relevance

Experiences and Outcomes
The title ‘experiences and outcomes’ recognises the importance of the quality and nature of the learning experience in developing attributes and capabilities and in achieving active engagement, motivation and depth of learning.

An outcome represents what is to be achieved. The experiences and outcomes are set out in lines of development which describe progress in learning.

They are organised into the eight curriculum areas:

Expressive arts
Health and wellbeing
Languages
Mathematics
Religious and moral education
Sciences
Social studies
Technologies
