New Curriculum for Wales

Curriculum Reform in Wales and in Cwmffrwdoer

This is an exciting time in education in Wales. We are in the process of developing a new curriculum that aims to create exciting relevant learning experiences for all the children of Cwmffrwdoer Primary School that will equip them with skills to become lifelong learners. The new curriculum is being developed by teachers to help develop all pupils to be:


  1. ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives
  2. enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work
  3. ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world
  4. healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

These four purposes will underpin all teaching and learning in Wales.

The new curriculum for 3-16 year olds will be organised into six areas of learning and experience (AoLE’s) to ensure a broad educational experience for all children and young people.

Literacy, numeracy and digital competence are so important to thinking, learning and life that they will be developed and strengthened across the whole curriculum alongside opportunities to develop wider skills and the Welsh curriculum. Learning will be a continuous experience, building progressively as children grow and mature with a range of Achievement Outcomes.
