Curriculum for Wales 2022
The Government plans to improve teaching in schools
The national mission is to raise standards, reduce the attainment gap, and deliver an education system that is a source of national pride and public confidence. Curriculum for Wales 2022, made in Wales but shaped by the best from around the world, is fundamental to achieving that mission.
The next few years are crucial in achieving ambitions which are shared – and demanded – across Wales. We need to ensure that our children and young people are able to lead fulfilling personal, civic and professional lives in our modern democracy.
Both at a national level and at a setting and school level, the curriculum needs to prepare children and young people to thrive in a future where digital skills, adaptability and creativity are crucial, where there is a blend of experiences, knowledge and skills, and that is rooted in Welsh values and culture.
Curriculum for Wales 2022 seeks to allow for a broadening of learning, supporting settings and schools to be more flexible in their approaches, and provides education leaders and practitioners with greater agency, enabling them to be innovative and creative.
At the heart of this are the four purposes of the curriculum, setting out the aspirations for all children and young people by the age of 16, enabling them 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.
