Schools and settings, including Johnstown Primary School, will begin teaching under the Curriculum for Wales in September 2022.
The Four Purposes
The four purposes will be at the heart of the new curriculum. They will be the starting point for all decisions on the content and experiences developed as part of the curriculum to support all children and young people to be:
- 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.
The new curriculum will include:
- 6 Areas of Learning and Experience from age 3 to 16.
- 3 cross curricular responsibilities: Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Competence.
- progression reference points at ages 5, 8, 11, 14 and 16.
- achievement outcomes which describe expected achievements at each progression reference point.
The curriculum will be organised into 6 Areas of Learning and Experience:
- Expressive arts
