Ysgol Trefnant

Learning and growing in our Christian Community



School curriculum

The curriculum at Ysgol Trefnant, along with every other school in the country, has undergone a radical reappraisal in the light of the introduction of the New Curriculum for Wales. The staff meet regularly to develop strategies for effective implementation, and with input from the children, create a curriculum which has balance, relevance and is differentiated to meet individual needs. Our aims and initiatives for each term are outlined in the school development plan and parents may see this on request in the school.


Please see the class pages for further details of what they are learning about this term.

The school has pursued a programme of extending its Information Communication Technology, and Chromebooks and iPads are available in all classrooms. 

Parents wishing to consult the L.E.A.’s statement on the curriculum can request a copy through the school.


Where children are experiencing learning difficulties and need more help and guidance than can be provided in the class situation, targeted provision is available. Parents are informed of such provision and are consulted as to children’s progress.


A New Curriculum for Wales


Ysgol Trefnant supports our children to be:


  • 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.


Our new curriculum covers each of the six ‘Areas of Learning and Experience' (AoLE):

  • Expressive arts
  • Health and well-being
  • Humanities (including Religion, Values and Ethics-'RVE')
  • Languages, literacy and communication (including Welsh and modern foreign languages)
  • Mathematics and numeracy
  • Science and technology.
