Curriculum information


We are continuing to develop our new Cwmfelin Curriculum which began its implementation in September 2022.


The four purposes are at the heart of our curriculum and underpin everything that we do. Teachers ensure that planning reflects these four purposes and provide opportunities for pupils to become ambitious and capable, healthy and confident, ethical and informed and creative and enterprising. Throughout the school, lessons focus on the knowledge, skills and experiences that pupils will experience in a range of real life, authentic contexts. Through consultation with parents, pupils and staff, our curriculum has developed and allowed for a concept based approach to be implemented. Cross cutting themes and cross curricular skills are evident in planning and pupils contribute to the planning process. Children learn through an inquiry based approach and teachers are incorporating thinking skills into daily lessons. 

A variety of teaching methods are employed to encourage pupils to become independent learners and access a range of more challenging materials.


All pupils are encouraged to speak Welsh and incidental Welsh is used throughout the school day. We are currently working towards our Bronze Siarter Iaith Award and our Criw Cymraeg distribute a weekly 'phrase of the week'. The Welsh Language is promoted in classes through displays and storybooks and Welsh songs and prayers feature in assemblies. Our annual Eisteddfod celebrates the heritage, language and culture of our country and we explore how these aspects represent our 'cynefin'.
