A revised accountability system and framework for school improvement is seen as crucial if the new curriculum is to be successfully realised in schools.

Now, after extensive discussion with heads, education consortia and others, new school improvement guidance has been released for consultation.

The new draft guidance aims to:

  • strengthen the effectiveness of school self-evaluation and improvement planning
  • replace the national categorisation system with a support process that doesn’t involve publishing school categories
  • clarify how evaluation and improvement activities will be separate from the accountability system
  • clearly assign roles and responsibilities for each contributor to the self-improving system

This is an important milestone on Wales’ education reform journey, with significance for those beginning to work with the new curriculum in schools.

Views are welcome; the consultation runs until 15th March 2021.
