Curriculum

At Malpas Church in Wales Primary School 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.

 

Our Mission Statement of ‘Educating Minds, Educating Hearts’ is at the centre of everything we do and is at the heart of the teaching and learning experiences we provide.

 

The New Curriculum – Successful Futures

 

A new curriculum is being developed for settings and schools in Wales. The curriculum will be available by April 2019 for feedback. A final version will be available in January 2020, and will be used throughout Wales by 2022.

 

The new curriculum will have more emphasis on equipping young people for life. It will build their ability to learn new skills and apply their subject knowledge more positively and creatively.

The purpose of the new curriculum is to support our 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.
     
  • It will have six ‘Areas of Learning and Experience (AoLE).
  • Expressive arts.
  • Health and well-being.
  • Humanities (including RE which should remain compulsory to age 16).
  • Languages, literacy and communication (including Welsh, which should remain compulsory to age 16, and modern foreign languages).
  • Mathematics and numeracy.
  • Science and technology.

 

It will also include three cross-curricular responsibilities: literacy, numeracy and digital competence.
