P-05-860 Make Curriculum for Life Lessons Compulsory  

This petition was submitted by Emily Jones having collected 121 signatures online and 165 on paper, a total of 286 signatures.

Text of Petition

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to ensure that curriculum for life lessons are compulsory for secondary schools across Wales and that the content is reviewed annually by a board of elected young people. 


Additional Information

A curriculum for life would include topics such as; finance, sex and relationships, politics and basic living skills. Article 28 of the UNCRC states children have the right to an education. However, the current curriculum is failing to provide us with the life skills we need.
