Curriculum for Wales

The Four Purposes


New curriculum developments are exciting for both staff and pupils!

Ysgol Gellifor is working within the New Curriculum for Wales which came into effect in 2022. Underpinning the new curriculum are four key purposes which will be at the heart of our teaching and learning.


Everything that is taught and learnt at school will have these Four Purposes as starting points when staff plan for the enriched learning experiences that pupils will receive.  

These four broad purposes are the exactly the same for pupils from Nursery to Year 6 but may appear in different ways in each class.

Areas of Learning and Experience (AoLE)


As well as literacy, numeracy and digital skills, there are six areas of learning and experience. Everything your child learns will be connected to these areas.


Each area of learning and experience contains statements of what matters which shape learning for children of all ages. These help your child think about what they’re learning and how topics link to each other, to work and to life. They also support your child to progress each year as they build their understanding and skills.
