Our Curriculum Vision
At Ysgol yr Holl Saint - All Saints’ School we are committed to providing a curriculum which is underpinned by the Four Purposes and aligned to the Curriculum for Wales 2022. Our curriculum is bespoke to All Saints’ school: it is rich in learning within our locality, with current global issues and it adheres to our Christian values. We aim to develop our learners to be respectful of our world, be curious, enquiring, and able to think critically about their learning. They will encounter themes and topics which will be meaningful, inspiring, engaging, nurturing and celebratory.
Experiences and enquiry will drive the curriculum and give opportunities for learners to develop skills which will enable them to be effective learners today, in further education, employment or training in the future.
Our curriculum goes beyond a series of lessons: it is everything learners experience in pursuit of the Four Purposes; a multi-disciplinary approach where links are made to many of the Areas of Learning and Experience underpinned by cross-curricular and integral skills.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum at Ysgol yr Holl Saint - All Saints' School. We follow the National Curriculum for Wales, which is broken down into the Foundation Phase for pupils aged 3-7 and Key Stage Two for those aged 7-11. The curriculum in Wales is undergoing a period of significant reform which will see the implementation of the Curriculum for Wales from September 2022. The Curriculum for Wales will see a step change in how we approach teaching and learning with traditional subject disciplines merged to form broader Areas of Learning and Experience. You can find out more about these changes below.
Our highly skilled staff are carrying out significant work in advance of the implementation of the Curriculum for Wales to ensure that we maintain the rigour of the subject disciplines, but realise the benefits of the broader Areas of Learning and Experience approach to teaching and learning.
