Curriculum for Wales

The Curriculum for Wales became statutory in September 2022.

In Ysgol Cae’r Gwenyn, we are delivering a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum, allowing all our children to have fun whilst learning. We have been preparing for the full implementation of the curriculum for a number of years.

Activities are pitched at the children’s level of development enabling them to learn and succeed at a rate suitable to each individual. There are six new areas of Learning and Experience namely: · Languages, Literacy and Communication · Mathematics and Numeracy · Science and Technology · Humanities · Health and Well being · Expressive Arts.

The four purposes of the curriculum are the shared vision and aspiration for every child and young person. They are at the heart of our new curriculum and guide and direct everything we do at Ysgol Cae’r Gwenyn.  In supporting the development of the four purposes, we set high expectations for all – to raise standards, tackle the attainment gap, and ensure that our curriculum supports lifelong learning.

All teaching and learning is underpinned by these four core purposes. The four purposes are the starting point for all decisions on the content and experiences developed as part of the curriculum to support our children and young people to become: * ambitious, capable learners ready to learn throughout their lives * enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work * ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world * healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
