A New Curriculum – A new era for Welsh education and Monnow primary school

This is an exciting time for our children and our school as we implement the new curriculum for Wales in September 2022. Improving education is our national mission and here at Monnow Primary we recognise it is imperative that our children have universal access to, and acquisition of the experiences, knowledge and skills that our young people need for employment, lifelong learning and active citizenship. All of which our new curriculum is designed to do. 


A vision for our school’s curriculum 

Our school’s vision, values and aims are designed to ensure that we realise each of the four purposes which are at the heart of the curriculum design.  

Our curriculum is designed to support our leaners to become ...


  • ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives 

  • enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work 

  • ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world 

  • healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society
