Creating a vision for the curriculum June 2022 - Questionnaire for parents and carers

In September 2022 Wales will see the implementation of a brand new curriculum. Please click on the link below to watch a short video. It is important to note that at Penmaes we plan activities linked to the 4 purposes at a level appropriate to individual pupils through highly effective differentiation processes.

At the heart of the Curriculum for Wales are the 4 purposes and these are as follows:


  • ambitious capable learners

  • ethically informed citizens

  • Healthy confident individuals

  • enterprising and creative contributors


We at Penmaes are planning a new curriculum which will enable pupils to become all the above but at a level that is relevant and meaningful to them. As part of this process it is imperative that we gather the views of all stakeholders in helping us to form ‘OUR’ vision for the curriculum at Penmaes.


Please find below a link to a questionnaire that we would like to ask you to complete.
