Foramharc ar an gCuraclam

Sa churaclam seo tá na prionsabail leanbhlárnacha atá le fáil sa churaclam roimhe seo Curaclam na Bunscoile (1971). Aithníonn sé trí aidhm oideachais bhunscoile:

  • an leanbh a chumasú chun saol iomlán a leanúint agus a p(h)oitéinseal féin a bhaint amach mar dhuine ann nó inti féin
  • an leanbh a chumasú chun forbairt a dhéanamh mar neach sóisialta ag maireachtáil agus ag comhoibriú le daoine eile chun chur le leas na sochaí uile
  • chun an leanbh a ullmhú d’oideachas breise agus d'fhoghlaim ar feadh an saoil

Tá an curaclam foghlaimeoir-lárnaithe. Leagtar béim ann ar litearthacht, ar uimhríocht agus teanga agus san am céanna freagraíonn sé ar na riachtanais síorathraithe san eolaíocht agus sa teicneolaíocht, san oideachas sóisialta pearsanta agus sláinte agus sa tsaorántacht.

Cuirtear an curaclam i láthair i sé réimse ábhar agus is ionann sin agus 11 ábhar. Is ar na húdaráis phatrúnachta ar leith atá an fhreagracht i gcónaí as an gcuraclam in oideachas reiligiúnach do bhunscoileanna a fhorbairt agus a chur i bhfeidhm.

Mínítear na príomhaidhmeanna, prionsabail agus gnéithe den churaclam sa Réamhrá agus tá siad ina gcúltaca ar an múinteoireacht agus an fhoghlaim i ngach ábhar den churaclam. Cuirtear cáipéisí curaclaim (ina bhfuil spriocanna ábhar agus snáithe nó snáithaonaid) agus treoirlínte do mhúinteoirí ar fáil do gach ábhar den churaclam. Tá sé d'aidhm san iomlán ag Curaclam na Bunscoile na leanaí a chumasú chun déileáil le héilimh an tsaoil le muinín agus le cinnteacht anois agus sa todhchaí (Réamhrá, lch.6)

 


The curriculum incorporates the child centred principles of its predecessor, Curaclam na Bunscoile (1971). It identifies three primary aims of primary education:

  • to enable the child to live a full life as a child and to realise his or her potential as a unique individual
  • to enable the child to develop as a social being through living and co-operating with others and so contribute to the good of society
  • to prepare the child for further education and lifelong learning.

The curriculum is learner-centred. It emphasises the importance of literacy, numeracy, and language, while at the same time responding to changing needs in science and technology, social personal and health education, and citizenship.

The curriculum is presented in six subject areas comprising 11 subjects. The development and implementation of the curriculum in religious education in primary schools remains the responsibility of the relevant patron bodies.
