Draft school curriculum for Wales published – “big culture change”

The draft of the new curriculum has been unveiled, in what has been called a “major milestone” in the biggest reform to Welsh schools in decades. The BBC reports.

The education minister said the new curriculum would be a “big culture change” and “very different to what most of us will have experienced”.

It will be introduced in 2022 for all children currently in Year 3 or below.

But unions have raised concerns that the aspirations could be jeopardised due to underfunding and job cuts.

The new curriculum aims to rethink what and how young people should be taught, and introduces six broad areas of learning and experience (AOLE).

It will be introduced in primary and Year 7 classrooms from September 2022 before being rolled out to all year groups. Universities, employers, teachers and parents are now being asked to give their views before the final version is published next year.

Ministers emphasise that schools themselves have been instrumental in developing the new curriculum.

About 200 “pioneer” schools have been involved. There has been concern others will be much further behind.

Many teachers are hugely enthusiastic about the freedom the new curriculum could offer, but others will worry there is a lack of clarity around what is expected from them.

Education Minister Kirsty Williams said the new curriculum would not amount to “a rule book”.

“We’re moving away from an outdated, narrow curriculum that sets out subject by subject, topic by topic and hour by hour what pupils should be learning.

“Using their considerable knowledge, experience and expertise, teachers in Wales have instead built a framework that sets out the fundamentals of a truly 21st-Century education.”
