Ensuring the impact of Curriculum for Excellence

This programme is designed to support the continuing implementation of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) to ensure that its original aspirations for learners in Scotland are met. The programme includes:

  • taking forward the recommendations of the Assessment and National Qualifications Group report (May 2016) relating to the creation of benchmarks for all curriculum areas other than literacy and English and numeracy and mathematics by December 2016, and a subsequent programme of support for teachers on use of the benchmarks
  • a review of the demands placed on schools by local authorities in relation to Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) as requested by the Depute First Minister in Delivering Excellence and Equity in Scottish Education: A Delivery Plan for Scotland (June 2016)
  • work to support a range of national priorities across curriculum areas and sectors, for example literacy and numeracy, 1+2 modern languages, Gaelic Education, Scots, food and health, learning for sustainability, outdoor learning and physical education.
  • work to produce a children's and young people's version of How good is our school?, due for publication early 2017.
