At Les Enfants we follow the Curriculum for Excellence
The 3-18 curriculum aims to ensure that all children and young people in Scotland develop the attributes, knowledge and skills they will need to flourish in life, learning and work.
At Les Enfants we provide children with opportunities to gain the knowledge, skills and attributes learners need to be able to demonstrate the four key capacities identified in the Curriculum for Excellence – to be successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.
The curriculum includes all of the experiences which are planned for children and young people through their education, wherever they are being educated. These experiences are grouped into four categories.
Curriculum areas and subjects
The curriculum areas are the organisers for setting out the experiences and outcomes. Each area contributes to the four capacities.
How the curriculum should include space for learning beyond subject boundaries.
Ethos and life of the nursery
The starting point for learning is a positive ethos and climate of respect and trust based upon shared values across the school community.
Opportunities for personal achievement
Pupils need opportunities for achievements both in the classroom and beyond, giving them a sense of satisfaction and building motivation, resilience and confidence.
Added to this, because children learn through all of their experiences - in the family and community, pre-school centre, nursery and school - the curriculum aims to recognise and complement the contributions that these experiences can make.
