PHILOSOPHY OF THE SCHOOL
At Ysgol Craig y Don the aim is to try to ensure that the education provided enhances the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of each pupil and that the nature of the complete curriculum is varied, expansive and balanced. In order to fulfil these needs the class organisation will at times be flexible.
Curriculum Council for Wales
In accordance with the Curriculum Council for Wales’ proposal, the curriculum is planned on the basis of seven aspects of learning in the Foundation Phase and eleven in Key Stage 2, including the core and foundation subjects.
The contribution of these subjects is noted systematically in the teacher’s planning. By giving children tasks and experiences based on specific themes, or an inter-disciplinary basis, the school will seek to ensure that the essential elements of the Curriculum are not forgotten.
