For Their Future (English)For Their Future (Welsh)

NAHT Cymru is the definitive voice of school leaders in Wales. We keep the best interests of children at the heart of everything we do.

Along with our colleagues in England and Northern Ireland, we are here to defend and extend the rights of our members, as well as provide advice, protection and support specific to school leaders throughout Wales

NAHT Cymru yw llais diffyniadol arweinwyr ysgolion yng Nghymru. Mae buddiannau gorau plant yng nghraidd popeth a wnawn.

Ynghyd â'n cydweithwyr yn Lloegr a Gogledd Iwerddon, rydym yn bodoli i warchod ac ymestyn hawliau ein haelodau, yn ogystal â darparu cyngor, diogelwch a chymorth sy'n benodol i arweinwyr ysgolion ledled Cymru.

NAHT Cymru responds to Welsh Government plans to reform of the school day/year

NAHT Cymru Director Laura Doel: “While we await this apparent ‘emerging evidence base’, it seems the Welsh Government is determined to push ahead regardless.

“Yet again the language being used refers to fitting in with modern patterns of family life and employment. Schools’ focus has to be on teaching and learning and while support for working families is admirable, that is not the evidence base on which to make major changes to schools.

“NAHT Cymru supports tackling education inequalities but the international evidence shows that extending the length of time in school has little or no impact on learner attainment.  Strong leadership, highly-skilled teachers and smaller classes have the biggest impact, yet these factors are not being supported.

“This enrichment programme cost £2m to support 1,800 learners for just 10 weeks. We have single schools that have that many learners. How does the government propose to fund such a project? Unless of course it commits to the full-scale review of education funding and spending we continue to call for and makes sure all money spent in education offers the very best value for our learners.”
