Our Curriculum for Excellence Overview

Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) aims to achieve a transformation in education in Scotland by providing a coherent, more flexible and enriched curriculum for all children and young people aged 3 to 18. The curriculum includes the totality of experiences which are planned for children through their education, wherever they are being educated.

Here at Queensferry Primary, the experiences we provide for our learners is underpinned by our curriculum map.

The curriculum at QPS


Teachers are constantly assessing how well your child is doing in their learning – and in many, many ways – including through marking every day, creating assessments which take a closer look at key learning, observing, and talking to your child. Every child in P1, P4, P7 and S3 will take national standardised assessments online, which cover some aspects of reading, writing and working with numbers.
