Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act 2021

Section 38 – Development work and experiments

75.This section enables the Welsh Ministers to give a direction to schools and funded non-maintained nurseries in order to enable them to participate in development work or experiments.

76.A direction given under this section may modify or disapply some or all of the curriculum implementation duties in sections 27, 28, 29 and 30 (in relation to schools) and sections 34, 35 and 36 (in relation to funded non-maintained nurseries) for a period specified in the direction, so that the development work or experiment can take place. A direction could therefore be used, for example, to allow schools to take part in a pilot for a proposed new area of learning and experience.
