New Curriculum in Wales

We have changed the way children
and young people learn in schools. Schools are now  in charge of writing their own
curriculum. A school curriculum is a plan for what children
and young people will learn at school. It says:
– What they should learn
– How they should learn
– The reasons why they should learn.

Schools will write their own curriculum because they know the children and young people they teach. So they know how to meet their needs. We are writing a new guide about what schools should include in their curriculum. We are writing this guide to make sure:
• Every child and young person is learning in a way
that is right for them.

Children and young people understand new ideas
and changes to things like technology.
Technology is using science and knowledge to
help us do tasks, for example using computers
and machines to do more and more.
▪ Children and young people are able to do well
and are prepared for the future.

Curriculum vision Maesmarchog Primary School

At Maesmarchog Primary School we want children and their families to be part of our learning community who all work together to foster a love of learning and where they feel they belong. We will support our learners to understand their strengths and skills and support them to achieve their potential. We will deliver a stimulating, empowering and responsive curriculum within an inclusive and caring environment which enables our pupils 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 

Our school’s curriculum is everything a learner experiences in pursuit of the four purposes above and is not based solely on what we teach, but how we teach and most importantly, why we teach it.
