Les Voies School follows the new Bailiwick of Guernsey Curriculum: 'The Big Picture'. The Big Picture Curriculum has been written with a view to prepare the children and young people of our islands for the opportunities and challenges of living in the 21st century.

All children and young people should have the same opportunities and entitlement. We want our young people to grow into healthy, successful adults. They will know about their islands and the big wide world and learn the skills to manage their own lives. This will enable them to gradually understand the world of work. The curriculum has been written to flow from age 5 to 19. Increased emphasis is placed on meaningful and purposeful learning across subject areas, skills development and personal achievement.

The Big Picture is intended to develop all children as:

  • Successful learners

  • Confident individuals

  • Responsible citizens

  • Effective contributors

Children and young people, teachers and support services from across the Committee for Education, Sport and Culture have been celebrating the launch of the planning for the new curriculum by dancing for joy. Please watch their video.
