Curriculum for Excellence

Literacy and English, Principles and Practice

“I develop and extend my literacy skills when I have opportunities to explore the richness and diversity of language and how it can affect me and the wide range of ways in which I and others can be creative.”

Texts are defined in the Principles and Practice and they include:

“Examples of writing by Scottish authors which relate to the history, heritage and culture of Scotland. They may include writing in Scots and Gaelic in translation.”

Literacy and English Experiences and Outcomes Feb 2008.

“The languages, dialects and literature of Scotland provide a rich resource for children and young people to learn about Scotland’s culture, identity and language. Through engaging with a wide range of texts they will develop an appreciation of Scotland’s vibrant literacy and linguistic heritage and its indigenous languages and dialects. This principle suffuses the experiences and outcomes and it is expected that practitioners will build upon the diversity of language represented within the communities of Scotland, valuing the languages which children and young people bring to school.”
