THE CURRICULUM

The National Curriculum in Wales

The school follows the National Curriculum in Wales. Being a voluntary aided Roman Catholic school, Religion is taught as important part of the curriculum. As such it is part of the ‘core’ curriculum. The curriculum is in two main parts:

Core Subjects’ English, Mathematics, Science & Religious Education

Foundation’ History, Geography, Art, Music, Design Technology,
Physical Education, Welsh as a second language,

I.C.T.
is a subject in its own right but also runs through all the above as a key skill. Similarly, Personal & Social Education and Education in Sustainability, Global Development & Citizenship pervade many areas of the curriculum.

At the end of their time in school, the children undertake a series of assessment tasks. These added together with assessments throughout their time in school allow the school to award the child with a National Curriculum level. The expected level for children at age 11 is Level 4.

All schools are inspected on a six-year cycle by ‘Estyn’, the inspection authority for Wales. For more information on the school’s last inspection visit Estyn at http://www.estyn.gov.uk/home.asp
