Footnotes

1 Curriculum for Excellence: Building the Curriculum 3 - A Framework for Learning and Teaching, June 2008, provides a framework for planning a curriculum to meet the needs of all children and young people from 3 to 18. The document also sets out what young people are entitled to expect from the curriculum, including an entitlement to opportunities to develop skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work with a focus on literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing

2 The curriculum is more than curriculum areas and subjects. It is the totality of experiences which are planned for children and young people through their education

3 Throughout this paper, the term 'school' should be taken to include pre-school centres, residential and day special schools (including secure provision), and primary and secondary schools, wherever it is used

4 We recognise that many young people who are post 16 may view themselves as adults. However, in this document we have adopted the terminology of children and young people to reflect a consistent approach across Curriculum for Excellence
