Principles and practice

​The principles and practice documents are essential reading for practitioners as they begin, and then develop, their work with the statements of experiences and outcomes. Each document sets out the purposes of learning within a particular curriculum area, describes how the experiences are organised, and offers guidance on aspects such as learning and teaching, broad features of assessment, progression and connections with other areas of the curriculum.

The principles and practice documents are available to download in two formats (both Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF) and two languages (English and Gaelic).

There are also documents for the three areas that are the responsibility of all practitioners: literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing across learning.
