Curriculum for Wales 2022

Schools across Wales are changing. At Radyr, from September, there will be a new curriculum for Year7. This is being developed by teachers to suit the needs of our learners.

We are seeking the views of all partners, including anyone from the business community in Wales. If you would like to be involved, please use this link to complete a survey:

Also, as part of the consultation, parents of Year 7 pupils will be sent a link to a survey where they can share their views specifically about the curriculum at Radyr.
