Designing your curriculum

A curriculum built on strong principles can offer children experiences that engage, motivate, challenge and instil in them a lifelong love of learning.

These principles form the foundation of the new model of curriculum design. They give a reference point for identifying what is important when making decisions that will influence the learning opportunities for children. Schools will adapt and personalise their design principles to meet the needs and aspirations of their children.
