Curriculum for Wales
Children in Wales will be studying a new curriculum from September 2022.
Children who attend school in Wales follow a different curriculum from the National Curriculum used in England – and that curriculum is currently undergoing a significant shake-up.
The Curriculum for Wales is due to be rolled out from September 2022, with primary schools being the first to switch to the new curriculum.
The curriculum is being reformed in order to raise standards, reduce the attainment gap between students, and equip young people to lead ‘fulfilling personal, civic and professional lives’ in modern society.
It aims to prepare children to thrive in a future where digital skills, adaptability and creativity are crucial, and that is rooted in Welsh values and culture.
