Curriculum excellence developing consolidating
There is an emphasis across the Government Statistical Service (GSS) to consult users during the review of statistics, and to make experimental series available during this period to assist in the quality assurance, development and familiarisation of the statistics.
The Code of Practice for Official Statistics promotes and supports the release of experimental statistics to involve users in their development at an early stage; however, it is likely that the statistics will not be fully compliant in all areas due to their nature as 'data being developed'.
The Fourth Level experiences and outcomes are intended to provide possibilities for choice and young people's programmes will not include all of the Fourth Level outcomes.
1.3 Gaelic Medium Education Children based in Gaelic Medium Primary Schools/classes will learn and develop their literacy and numeracy skills in both the medium of Gaelic and English.
A wide range of evidence is collected in a variety of ways.
This includes observing learners at work, assessing children's knowledge and understanding by talking to them about their learning, and assessing their work in class.
While children and young people should feel that the transition from one stage of learning to another is smooth, they should still be able to look forward to the excitement of starting nursery, primary school and secondary school, and finally to moving on to positive and sustained destinations. The Fourth Level broadly equates to Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework level 4.The information included in this publication is the first such data for the BGE to be gathered and published under Cf E.The data shows the Cf E level achieved (as per teacher professional judgements) for each pupil within selected stages (P1, P4, P7 and S3 and for pupils based in standalone special schools/units) in reading, writing, listening & talking and numeracy, and relates to the Cf E level achieved as at June 2016.Using the information that has been received this year, we are still able to analyse the information in order to look at the overall picture of the Cf E levels that have been achieved for the children based in special schools/units.1.5 Experimental statistics Experimental statistics are Official Statistics that are undergoing development.
