The school aims to provide an inclusive, broad, balanced and challenging curriculum that nurtures the needs of each pupil. The curriculum provides each pupil with an education to be able to develop into independent learners relevant to the modern world.
Our main aims are to:
Skills across the Curriculum
Ysgol Pen y Bryn puts a great emphasis in advancing literacy, numeracy and digital literacy across the curriculum to allow these skills to be transferable in any situation.
New Curriculum Reform
Ysgol Pen y Bryn is determined to a provide a curriculum that has an emphasis on equipping young people for life. We strive to build on pupil’s ability to learn new skills and apply their subject knowledge in a positive and creative way.
As the new curriculum in Wales develops, Ysgol Pen y Bryn will keep abreast of the developments and continue to be recognised for our innovative practice whilst maintaining high standards.
Our planning encompasses the four purposes of the new curriculum to promote ambitious, capable learners, enterprising, creative contributors, healthy, confident individuals and ethical, informed citizens.
The new curriculum has six ‘Areas of Learning and Experience’ (AOLE), which combines the present subjects in the existing curriculum.
We plan our curriculum in line with these ‘Areas of Learning and Experience’.
