- My Local School
Welcome to My Local School, a website designed to open up access to schools data for parents and all others with an interest in their local school.
The site contains a wealth of data from contextual information, such as data on pupil numbers and characteristics, to school performance, attendance and data on staffing and finance.
- Learning Wales
Launched on 24 September in Beta, this is an evolving site where the content, layout and site navigation undergo final public testing.
There are currently three areas (*Literacy, Numeracy and Poverty*) available to view. Throughout the Beta period of the website, we will unveil new areas in a phased approach. The next three areas, Behaviour and attendance, Additional learning needs (ALN) and inclusion and Reflective practice and action enquiry will be published in November. Further areas will be published in January and May 2013.
- Inspection Wales
We, Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW), Estyn (Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for Education and Training in Wales), Healthcare Inspectorate Wales (HIW), and the Wales Audit Office (WAO) are the four main inspection, audit and review bodies in Wales.
We are four independent, strong sectoral inspectorates with professional authority in our own fields. CSSIW, Estyn, HIW and WAO have made a strategic agreement between our organisations setting out the commitment to work closely together to encourage improvement in public services.
- The Travel Code Website
The Travel Code has been in effect since January 2010. It is an integral part of the general behaviour policy of all schools and all learners must comply with it. There is responsibility on teachers, head teachers, local authorities and parents to promote awareness and understanding of the Code and to disseminate the message that following the Code could save lives.
- Teachers TV
The Department of education is making all 3,500 15min Teachers TV programmes and related content freely available on a non-exclusive basis.
- BOG Standard
Bog Standard is a campaign to promote better toilets for pupils.
Our 3 aims are:
- To increase awareness of the health benefits of better toilets for pupils
- To encourage schools to improve the condition of pupils’ toilets and to allow pupils to use them when they need to
- To get laws that will make pupils’ toilets nicer to use
School toilets affect children’s physical and psychological health. Toilets which are unpleasant, or out of bounds, can cause serious, long-term health problems.
- Schools' Portal
This portal has been designed to give schools and local authorities easy access to a range of useful sites and information from a single point of contact.
- School Effectiveness Framework
The SEF is the overarching policy framework that seeks to transform educational standards and provision in Wales through the next decade and beyond. It is Wales’ key policy for education reform and the one to which all other education policies are aligned.
Aims and objectives
- Achieving better learning outcomes and wellbeing for all children and young people regardless of their socio economic background; and
- Reducing the variation in learning outcomes within and between classrooms, schools and local authorities
- All-Wales Travel Behaviour Code
The Travel Code explains how children and young people should behave on the school or college journey. Learning and using these easy rules can make a big difference to everyone’s day. All children and young people between the ages of 5–19 are covered by the Travel Code, whether they walk, take the bus or train, bike or even travel by car.
Stick to the Travel Code.
