RSE Curriculum - Please click on the link below to see the RSE overview of lessons for your child's year group. If you would like to look at any of the materials, please see the school office where there is a copy available for parents/carers to view.

This is an exciting time for the young people of Wales. A new Curriculum for Wales has been developed with education professionals across Wales that will enthuse learners from 3 to 16, giving them the foundations they need to succeed in a changing world.


    A new curriculum for Wales

    4 purposes

    The 4 purposes are at the heart of our new curriculum. They will be the starting point for all decisions on the content and experiences developed as part of the curriculum 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.

    Key elements

    The new curriculum includes:

    • 6 Areas of Learning and Experience from 3 to 16
    • 3 cross curriculum 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 curriculum will be organised into 6 Areas of Learning and Experience:

    • 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 (including computer science).
