Curriculum for Excellence has been introduced to raise standards of learning and teaching for all 3 to 18 year olds.
It aims to help prepare children and young people with the knowledge and skills they need in a fast changing world. Curriculum for Excellence is all about bringing real life into the classroom and taking lessons beyond it.
Learning and teaching will still focus on subjects and knowledge.
