Genuine, supported school-to-school collaboration is the only way to ensure the desired system-wide educational improvement can take place in Wales.
School leaders, teachers and support staff already work hard to provide the best learning environment for their pupils.
In order to enable the profession to achieve the ambition articulated in Welsh.
Government educational policy, our members need:
Our focus must be on support and we should aim for sustained improvement not just quick, short-term fixes which do not last
- Funding – We need fairer funding across Wales.
This ensures that every child is valued and additional grants are then released to maximise their impact for the most in need
Only then can we deliver the best for the children and young people of Wales
- Pupil wellbeing - To be able to support children’s mental health and wellbeing.
This can’t be an added on extra, it is essential to maximise pupil progress and remains the duty of all who genuinely care about their future.
