Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act 2021

Sections 13 and 14 – Welsh Ministers’ duty to publish a curriculum for funded non-maintained nursery education settings

26.Section 13 requires the Welsh Ministers to publish a curriculum which they consider is suitable for FNNE. This approach – which differs from that for schools – reflects the fact that not all FNNE providers will have the resources or experience to design their own curriculum.

27.The curriculum designed by the Welsh Ministers must comply with the requirements in Chapter 2 of Part 2.

28.Section 14 requires the Welsh Ministers to keep the FNNE curriculum they have published under review and revise it if necessary to ensure it continues to comply with the requirements mentioned above. If they revise their FNNE curriculum, the Welsh Ministers must publish their revised curriculum.
