HAVE YOUR SAY ON WHAT'S HAPPENING IN EDUCATION

The Children, Young People and Education Committee is conducting an inquiry into the Welsh Government’s approach of targeting funding on particular cohorts of pupils, primarily disadvantaged pupils through the Pupil Development Grant (PDG). The inquiry will also consider the complementary yet distinct Schools Challenge Cymru programme, which until its closure in March 2017 focused on schools facing the greatest challenges in improving. The deadline for responses is 5 January 2018. Please send your views to: SeneddCYPE@assembly.wales Click here for further information

The Education (Amendments Relating to Teacher Assessment Information) (Wales) Regulations 2018 From 2018/19 Welsh Government will stop routinely publishing teacher assessment data and National Reading and Numeracy Tests data below the national level. These data will not be included in the School Comparative Reports and All Wales Core Data Sets. The deadline for responses is 30 January 2018.
