The Curriculum for Wales Framework guidance is updated annually in January. A consultation on some of the proposed changes for 2024 is open until 13th November, and your feedback is welcomed.
The revised section of guidance under consultation has been developed by practitioners and other partners and is aimed at making the guidance clearer and more user-friendly. The changes make it shorter and more focussed, using hyperlinks to related areas of guidance and supporting materials rather than repeating information that’s available elsewhere. It is intended to support schools, PRUs and other education settings with the practical steps of designing, implementing, and maintaining the ongoing review of their curriculum.
Significantly, the ‘Journey to curriculum roll-out’ section is proposed to be replaced by ‘Continuing the journey, reflecting that all schools are now using Curriculum for Wales. This will become statutory guidance in line with the rest of the Framework guidance.
