The introduction of the new Curriculum for Wales in 2022 must be delayed as teachers support their students through the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
Schools are being expected to deliver the curriculum reforms without sufficient time to fully prepare, representatives from Wales told the Annual Conference of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union today.
 
The Welsh Government’s decision to forge ahead with its original timescale for the implementation of the new curriculum is putting its success at risk, delegates were told.
 
Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT, said:
 
“These are landmark reforms which will have a profound and lasting impact on the futures of a generation of children and young people.
 
“It is therefore absolutely vital that these changes are introduced in a way which commands the confidence of teachers, pupils and parents.
 
“Teachers have been on the frontline during the Covid-19 pandemic, coping with unprecedented pressure to support pupils both in school and through remote learning.
 
“The Welsh Government must give teachers sufficient time, training and resources to ensure the introduction of the new curriculum runs smoothly.
 
“We will continue to take all steps necessary to ensure the strength of feeling of our members on this is heard loud and clear by ministers.”
