April 25, 2022 by admin

The Welsh Government is fully committed to the principles and practices embedded within the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (UNCRPD). The Convention requires signatory countries to protect these rights and to monitor progress. Welsh Government are keen to promote the Convention – to help ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights by disabled people.

Working with Richard Rieser, Disability Wales has been commissioned by Welsh Government to produce and pilot curriculum ideas and activities on disability and the UNCRPD to be introduced at Key Stages 1, 2, and 3. These curriculum ideas will be cross curricular, complementing the new reforms: Relationships Sexuality and Religion, Values and Ethics. These curriculum ideas will cross cut the 6 Areas: Expressive arts, Health and well-being, Humanities, Languages, literacy and communication, Mathematics and numeracy, Science and technology and Information Technology and Access.
