Our Curriculum

Our Cynefin = 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)
