The Four Purposes

The Four Purposes


The Four Purposes are at the heart of our New Curriculum. They help influence how we plan, teach and assess in each Area of Learning.


The Four Purposes aim to create:

  • Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives.
  • Healthy and confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
  • Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
  • Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work.
