Expressive Arts – Pioneer School

The national curriculum for Wales is changing and Ysgol Dinas Brân is at the forefront! We have been given the exciting opportunity of becoming a Pioneer School which places us as part of an all-Wales partnership team to create a new curriculum fit for modern Wales. The Music, Drama, Art departments in YDB are working along with school across Wales to design a new and innovative ’Expressive Arts’ curriculum for the future of Wales.

As a Pioneer School we are privileged to be given first hand knowledge of the developments within our new curriculum and we are able to trial and experiment with projects, themes and immersion days. In addition as a Pioneer School we will work in close partnership with schools across the county, cluster primary schools, and beyond to ensure that as many schools as possible are part of the design and development process.

During this year we will be trialling exciting new projects and asking for feedback from pupils and parents. Our children at YDB are at the forefront of an innovative, once in a generation, curriculum reform and we’re very excited to be able to work on this together.
