The new Curriculum for Wales marks a change of culture from one of telling schools what to do and what to teach to one which gives the responsibility to schools for developing a curriculum that works best for all their children and young people, within a national framework.
The new curriculum will be taught in all schools and funded non-maintained settings up to Year 7 from September 2022. It will then roll out year by year until it includes Year 11 by 2026.
