Introduction to Curriculum for Wales

The Curriculum for Wales guidance aims to help each school develop its own curriculum, enabling their learners to develop towards the four purposes of the curriculum – the starting point and aspiration for every child and young person in Wales.

This guidance will also be relevant for funded non-maintained nursery settings, pupil referral units (PRUs) and those responsible for the provision of education other than at school (EOTAS) in other settings, enabling them to develop an understanding of the Curriculum for Wales Framework (Framework).

The Curriculum for Wales guidance sets out:

  • the curriculum requirements set out in legislation for all learners aged 3 to 16, to ensure all schools cover the same core learning and to secure a consistency of approach for learners across Wales

  • guidelines for schools in developing their curricula

  • expectations around assessment arrangements to support learner progression.

It consists of the following.

  • Introduction to the Curriculum for Wales guidance.

  • Curriculum and assessment legislation requirements.

  • Designing your curriculum – general guidance on developing a curriculum across all areas of learning and experience (Area/Areas).

  • Introduction to each area of learning and experience.

  • Statements of what matters – the ‘big ideas’ and key principles in each Area.

  • Principles of progression – how learners make progress throughout their learning across the curriculum.

  • Descriptions of learning – how learners should make progress within each statement of what matters.

  • Designing your curriculum – principles for each Area – more Area-specific guidance on developing a curriculum.

  • Supporting learner progression - assessment guidance.
