The New Curriculum and Four Purposes  

At St. Alban's we are excited to develop our curriculum in line with the national changes being made.  We offer authentic learning experiences centered around the six areas of learning.  Our pupils have already begun sharing their ideas with us and we aim to plan tasks that both engage and develop independent learners.

The Four Purposes 

The purpose of the new curriculum is to support our children and young people to be:

  • ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives

  • enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work

  • ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world

  • healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

 

The new curriculum includes:

  • 6 Areas of Learning and Experience from 3 to 16

  • 3 cross curricular responsibilities: literacy, numeracy and digital competence

  • progression reference points at ages 5, 8, 11, 14 and 16

  • achievement outcomes which describe expected achievements at each progression reference point.

 

The six ‘Areas of Learning and Experience (AoLE)

  • Expressive arts.

  • Health and well-being.

  • Humanities (including RE which should remain compulsory to age 16).

  • Languages, literacy and communication (including Welsh, which should remain compulsory to age 16, and modern foreign languages).

  • Mathematics and numeracy.

  • Science and technology.

It will also include three cross-curricular responsibilities: literacy, numeracy and digital competence.
