New Wales Curriculum at Rhiw Syr Dafydd

Many of you will be aware that the Welsh Government are currently in the process of developing a new school curriculum.

I am delighted that we are involved in this process through our work as a professional learning pioneer school. A final version of the new curriculum will be ready in January 2020 and will be used throughout Wales in 2022.

You will notice that the current have been replaced by six areas of learning and experience and that Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Competence are skills which are to be developed across the curriculum.

Areas of learning and experience are: -

  • Expressive Arts
  • Health and Well-Being
  • Humanities
  • Languages, Literacy and Communication
  • Mathematics and Numeracy
  • Science and Technology

The curriculum is underpinned by the four purposes:

  • Ambitious, Capable Learners
  • Ethical, Informed Citizens
  • Healthy, Confident Individuals
  • Enterprising, Creative Contributors

Throughout the summer term we will be looking at ways of introducing elements of the new curriculum. I’m sure this will be an exciting time for the pupils as they will be involved in deciding what they are taught within classes.

Further information regarding this will be sent out prior to the Easter break.

A curriculum for Wales – a curriculum for life

A new curriculum is being developed for settings and schools in Wales. The curriculum will be available by April 2019 for feedback. A final version will be available in January 2020, and will be used throughout Wales by 2022..
