Curriculum for Excellence Levels


CfE supports our teachers to make professional judgments about what and how they teach. It encourages creative approaches and promotes cooperative strategies as we seek to engage, motivate and inspire our learners. We do this by using the Experiences and Outcomes from CfE to guide the learning plan. These are broad learning themes which are grouped according to pupils’ age and stage. In Methven primary we are mostly concerned with the following groupings: Early Level (typically pupils at Nursery and Primary 1); First Level (typically Primary 2 – 4 pupils); and Second Level (typically pupils from Primary 5 – Primary 7). Children are taught according to their individual ability and therefore assessment of pupils’ strengths and development needs are vital to the learning process.
