Primary schools into Wales are split into two phases: Foundation Phase (Nursery to Year 2) and Key stage 2(Year 3 to Year 6).
The curriculum for Wales is undergoing a major change. The curriculum for Wales is being redesigned to raise standards and raise the attainment for all children in Wales. Evidence from various sources suggested that children’s attainment in Wales is not as high as it could be. This prompted the education reform within Wales.
The curriculum has been designed for teachers by teachers and has also taken shape from the best ideas from around the world.
There will also be changes in how we assess children and support children with additional learning needs.
The new curriculum will be statutory across all primary schools in Wales from September 2022.
