Bame history to become mandatory part of Welsh curriculum, government says


It will become mandatory to teach pupils in Wales about black, Asian and minority ethnic stories (Bame), the country’s government has said.

It comes after Plaid Cymru last week called on Welsh history – including the history of Bame and LGBT people – to be included in a bill over the new curriculum, due to come into force next year.

The party warned these topics would likely not be taught consistently across the country, if they were not a mandatory part of the curriculum.

But a Welsh government spokesperson has refuted claims schools will not be required to teach Bame history in the country.

“We are immensely proud that for the first time Black, Asian and minority ethnic stories will be mandatory parts of the curriculum and will be taught to all pupils,” they said.
