The Primary Language Curriculum is for teachers of primary school children from Stages 1 – 4 (Junior Infants – Sixth Class) in all school contexts, including English-medium schools, Gaeltacht schools and Irish-medium schools. The primary language curriculum presents the intended learning and development for all children by providing the Foundation, Aims, Strands and Elements, and Learning Outcomes. The curriculum for Junior and Senior infants is aligned with the principles and methodologies of Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework (NCCA).
