An integral part of preparing for the new curriculum is engaging with parents and informing them – or reminding them – about the changes to come.
Whilst all schools will have subtly different interpretations of the curriculum to reflect their approach and local circumstances, the fundamentals will all be the same. Here’s a reminder of some useful materials which explain those fundamentals in an accessible way.
A short animation (3 ½ minutes) about the new curriculum:
A very accessible and concise guide for parents.
An accessible and concise guide for young people.
An ‘easy read’ version of the young people’s guide.
And here at Education is changing | GOV.WALES is a web page that is regularly updated, features background information, videos featuring parents and pupils, and links to resources and more guidance.
There’s also a guide for those who want information on Additional Learning Needs.
And in the Summer term a new monthly newsletter will be available to schools for sharing with parents to inform them about the new curriculum.
