Key Messages for Parents


  • Categorisation is about identifying which schools are in most need of support; it is not about labelling or creating league tables.


  • Categorisation allows us to see where we need to direct our resources and how we can support schools to improve through working with others.


  • Welsh Government have slightly changed the system so it places more of an emphasis on schools own assessment (self-evaluation) of their quality of teaching and learning and ability to help other schools to improve.
