Our Curriculum

Our curriculum 

 

The new curriculum for Wales offers schools the opportunity to build a curriculum which reflects the diverse needs of each school across Wales. For us here at Sennybridge C.P. School, this means we have the creative freedom to build a curriculum which is relevant to us here in the Brecon Beacons as well as members of Wales and the wider world.

 

Our curriculum aims to equip pupils with the skills to become:

-ambitious capable learners

-healthy confident individuals

-Ethical informed citizens 

-Enterprising creative contributors

(These are known as Wales as the Four Core purposes)

 

 

 

In Sennybridge child-speak these are:

Pedagogical Principles

 

There are 12 pedagogical principles that drive our curriculum vision. These principles support pupils in acquiring the skills needed to achieve the four core purposes.

The AOLE (Area of Learning Experiences)

 

The new curriculum removes the teaching of individualised subjects. Instead, there are six Areas of Learning Experiences. These are:

 

-Language, Literacy and Communication

-Mathematics and Numeracy

-Science and Technology

-Health and Well being

-Humanities

-Expressive Arts

 

The overarching themes

 

Throughout the AOLE's there are three overarching strands that run through them. These are:

-Language

-Numeracy

-DCF (Digital Competency Framework)

 

 

 

                       Our AOLE (Area of Learning Experience) Leadership structure

 

In order to achieve a high understanding and delivery of the curriculum, all stake holders have an area that they drive within the school. Our staff leads for the AOLE's are:
