It is expected that by the end of Primary 7, most children who have been based in Gaelic Medium Primary Schools/classes should be achieving Second Level in reading, writing, and listening & talking in both Gàidhlig and English.It is also expected that most children who have been based in Gaelic Medium Primary Schools/classes should be achieving First Level by the end of Primary 4, and Second Level by the end of Primary 7, in numeracy.
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.
The path most children and young people are expected to follow through the levels reflects the stages of maturation of children and young people and the changing ways in which they engage with learning as they develop.
Some children and young people will start learning at these levels earlier and others later, depending upon individual needs and aptitudes.
However, some establishments misunderstood the requirement and provided information for pupils which they record locally as being in P1, P4, P7 and S3.
Therefore, the information provided from standalone special schools/units has been inconsistent in this first year's data collection and the data requirements will be considered further for forthcoming collections.
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.
1.1 Achievement of Cf E Levels Return The data gathered in the Achievement of Curriculum for Excellence (Cf E) Levels Return relates to achievement in the Broad General Education (BGE) and is based on teacher professional judgements regarding pupil's achievement in literacy and numeracy against Cf E levels.
