Our Curriculum

"Now more than ever, young people need to be adaptable to change, capable of learning new skills throughout life and equipped to cope with new life scenarios. Advances in technology and globalisation have transformed the way we live and work. These changes have profound implications for what, and how, children and young people need to learn. Schools and teachers need more flexibility to respond to this environment, using a new curriculum which will promote high achievement and engage the interest of all children and young people to help them reach their potential. The new curriculum will bring this about by making learning more experience-based, the assessment of progress more developmental, and by giving teachers the flexibility to deliver in more creative ways that suit the learners they teach."
Welsh Government 2016

We are working towards changing our curriculum to bring what we currently teach in line with Professor Donaldson’s Successful Futures.  We are focusing our teaching under 6 main areas of learning and experience.  Within these areas of learning and experience, the subjects and disciplines remain important but are not watertight compartments but rather a means of organising day-to-day activities taking place creatively at school.

Language,Literacy and Communication

Languages, Literacy and Communication enable us to analyse and understand the world around us. By being supported to become successful in this area of learning and experience, learners are therefore also supported to succeed across the whole curriculum. Click here for more information.

Health and Well-being

The Health and Well-being Area of Learning and Experience is about the physical, psychological, emotional and social aspects of our lives. Click here for more information.

Mathematics and Numeracy

Mathematics is an international discipline, and numeracy, the application of mathematics, plays a critical part in our private, social and civic lives, and in the economic health of the nation. Click here for more information.
