Raising Standards Together

Consultation on the interim report on ‘The Cwricwlwm Cymreig, history and the story of Wales’

An opportunity for everyone to express their opinion on the future of the Cwricwlwm Cymreig and history.

The report which has just been launched on the Welsh Government’s website outlines the development of the Cwricwlwm Cymreig, and makes a number of recommendations on ways of improving the learning and teaching of it across all subjects. The report also comments on the present state of learning and teaching history and the story of Wales, and makes recommendations regarding the future of this subject.

This is the beginning of a period of consultation on this report and its recommendations. There is an opportunity to respond online, but some public meetings will also be held across Wales, so that everyone has the opportunity to discuss the report and its recommendations and to express their opinion.

The report is part of a wider review of the national curriculum and assessment which is currently underway, and the response to this report will influence the outcome of the wider review, which is to be published this autumn.

You can find the report itself below, and also the questionnaire which has been drafted to facilitate your response to it.
