‘Learning about caring; caring about learning’

Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum here.

We are committed to ensuring all our children have the opportunity to develop the skills and range as outlined in the Welsh Government’s Foundation Phase and National Curriculum, the Literacy and Numeracy Framework and the Digital Competence Framework. We ignite a passion for learning whilst embodying our whole school mission: “Learning about caring; caring about learning.”

The Draft new curriculum for Wales 2022

We are currently working towards implementing the goals of the draft curriculum for Wales. As a professional learning pioneer school we have helped to shape the curriculum so that it helps our students to be “successful learners, who play an active part in their community and wider society, and who are prepared to thrive in an increasingly complex world.” (Draft curriculum, 2019)

We strive to support our children to achieve the 4 purposes of the curriculum 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.

Authentic Learning

We aim to provide children with real, creative and fun learning experiences and for this reason pupils learning is set into context or theme. We strive to empower our learners and to give them a voice. For this reason we work in partnership with the global organization One World which helps us to connect our students with others on a global scale.

We:

 Educate for Global Competence/Global Awareness;

Connect our students through Character and Values;

Empower our students through Service Learning Opportunities.

 

Our students are made aware of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the 7 Well-being goals for Wales. Children are given opportunity to solve local and wider problems and to work in partnership with others to make a difference.

We strive to make our students aware of the Rights of the Child under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

 

The principles of our curriculum and organisation of the school day ensure that the requirements of the Foundation Phase and Curriculum 2008 are satisfied, and that all children receive a broad and balanced education.

 

Our work towards Curriculum 2022 builds upon our authentic learning opportunities. All learning has a key purpose and the 4 purposes for learning are at the heart of this. 

Learning is organised by the What Matters Statement in each of the 6 key area of learning (AOLE). These include:

  • Expressive Arts
  • Humanities
  • Health and well-being
  • Science and Technology
  • Mathematics and Numeracy
  • Languages, literacy and communication
