Wales Education Minister Kirsty Williams has announced the publication of the revised Curriculum for Wales guidance. You can find full details here.
The Minister said “I would like to thank practitioners for their commitment over the last three years in drafting this guidance.
I would also like to thank the individuals and organisations who engaged during the feedback phase last year after the guidance was released in draft.
The high quality and detail of these contributions has helped us make significant improvements.
Improving education is our national mission and nothing is as essential as universal access to the experiences, knowledge and skills and that our young people need for employment, lifelong learning and active citizenship.”

At Parentkind we are happy it says schools should communicate and engage with parents in designing their curriculum, which we suggested in our consultation response to the draft guidance. We will continue champion parents in Wales supporting their ‘parent voice’ in our work with education policy influencers and makers.
