Research with schools and learners on the early implementation of Curriculum for Wales

This report presents findings of the first wave of qualitative research with 64 senior leaders in schools and Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) which examined schools’ early experiences of roll-out of Curriculum for Wales (CfW).

It follows on from Qualitative research with practitioners on preparations for curriculum and assessment reforms published in January 2022. A report detailing findings of a second wave of interviews with senior leaders, as well as fieldwork with learners, will be published later in 2023.
