Debate the Curriculum for Excellence and all aspects of the Scottish curriculum in this Group. This is also the place to get advice from your peers on the most effective way to implement the curriculum
A nightmare indeed.
I wonder what you mean by being 'presented early' - are the pupils going to be presented for Nat 4 or 5 at the end of S3?
Thanks - Very intersting - I wasn't aware we would be allowed to present pupils for National exams at the end of S3 since pupils are supposed to be doing BGE till end of S3.
CfE has allowed schools/headteachers to experiment. I think this has been noticed and I am sure there will be some clarity and guidance provided soon. In the meantime, teachers have to cope which - I agree - is difficult given the fact that CfE is about progression and coherence. As an MFL teacher I feel that CfE has been a devolution rather than a revolution. There is light at the end of the tunnel though and hopefully the MFL working group of the Scottish government will be able to improve the situation. At the moment the curriculum is indeed a playground for headteachers. Early presentation of cohorts is not an option anymore in CfE. Early presentation for individual pupils is stil possible though.
