A New Curriculum for Wales
There are exciting changes happening in schools across Wales, with a realisation of a new curriculum in Wales from September 2022. At All Saints' we have already started to plan for this and adapt our teaching and learning so that children can develop the knowledge, skills and experiences they need across a broad and balanced curriculum.
The new curriculum is based around four main purposes and learning is planned to ensure that our pupils achieve these to become:
- Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives;
- Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work;
- Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world;
- Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
These purposes are developed across six areas of learning and through developing three cross-curricular responsibilities.
The six areas of learning are:
- Expressive Arts
- Health and Well-being
- Languages, Literacy and Communication
- Mathematics and Numeracy
- Science and Technology
We develop our pupils’ literacy, numeracy and digital competency skills across the curriculum in everything that we do. We use ‘real-life’ experiences to challenge and enable our children to make connections across learning experiences.
