How did your school do?

There has been a mixed bag of results for local schools after the Welsh Government released its latest colour-coded education classifications.

Local schools have been placed into four colours – green, yellow, amber, red – for the Welsh Government to identify the schools that require the most need.

It was good news for Welshpool High School, Oldford Infants and Nursery, Gungrog, Arddleen and Buttington Trewern Primary Schools who all obtained the green status.

But it was not so encouraging for Llanfyllin High School who are in the red this year.

Explaining the system, the Welsh Government says:

The system is about providing support and encouraging collaborative improvement by putting schools into a position that enables them to identify the factors that contribute to their progress and achievement, or what areas to focus on to achieve further development. It is not about labelling or creating league tables.

The system is a three-step model that is not purely data-driven but also takes into account the quality of leadership and teaching and learning in our schools.

·      Step one is a data-driven judgement using an agreed set of performance measures provided by the Welsh Government.

·      Step two begins with the school’s own self-evaluation of their capacity to improve in relation to leadership, teaching and learning.

·      Step three is the combination of the two judgements that will lead to a colour-coded support category for the school which will trigger a tailored programme of support, challenge and intervention. This is agreed between the local authority and regional consortium.
