We are always keen for our families to be involved with the learning that takes place in school and you also have an important part to play in extending your child's learning beyond the school day. Below are a few ideas that might prove useful at home. If you would like further information, please speaks to your child's class teacher, visit the plaza pages or take a look at the Welsh Government 'Education Begins At Home' information (found within the 'Useful Links' on the Parents page of the website).
To find out more about the curriculum and what your child is learning please check out our Plaza Pages.
Much of the way our new school has been developed and the changes in focus of the curriculum have been informed by the Donaldson Report, which was commissioned by the Welsh Assembly as an independent review of Curriculum and Assessments in Wales and was published in February 2015. This report is made up of a series of radical and wide ranging proposals that will shape the ways in which we teach and a vision for the future. We have done our best to try and instil as many of these principals in our new school, doing our very best for the children. The full report can be viewed below:
Welsh Government Curriculum Documents
Below you will find the statutory curriculum documents that are issued by Welsh Government. As a school, we use these documents as the starting point for our own curriculum planning. From time to time, these statutory documents are reviewed and amended. At present, we know that some of our current curriculum guidance will soon by replaced by the new Curriculum for Wales documentation, however, at present we are still required to follow the existing guidance.
