Experiences and Outcomes
Experiences and outcomes (often called Es&Os) are a set of clear and concise statements about children's learning and progression in each curriculum area. They are used to help plan learning and to assess progress. Es&Os are available in two formats (PDF and Microsoft Word) and in two languages - English and Gaelic.
Benchmarks have been developed to provide clarity on the national standards expected within each curriculum area at each level. They set out clear lines of progression in literacy and English and numeracy and mathematics, and across all other curriculum areas from early to fourth levels (first to fourth Levels in Modern Languages). Their purpose is to make clear what learners need to know and be able to do to progress through the levels, and to support consistency in teachers' and other practitioners' professional judgements.
Es&Os are included in the benchmark documents.
There are sets of Es&Os for the three areas that are the responsibility of all staff - literacy across learning, numeracy across learning and health and wellbeing across learning.
