National Literacy and Numeracy Framework and Tests
In his keynote address 'Raising Schools Standards' on 29 June 2011, to the Institute of Welsh Affairs, he announced the intention to introduce a new National Literacy and Numeracy Framework for all learners aged 5 to 14.
The recently published National Literacy Programme and the soon to be published National Numeracy Programme set out the actions the Welsh Government intends to implement to improve literacy and numeracy standards in Wales. The plans for a statutory national framework and for a system of national testing are integral to both programmes.
This consultation provides stakeholders and members of the public the opportunity to comment and seeks views on the Welsh Government's proposals for the following:
- a statutory National Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF)
- National Reading and Numeracy Tests.
How to respond
In order to respond to this consultation, stakeholders and members of the public will need the:
- consultation document
- consultation response form.
The consultation document has two sections.
- Section 1 provides an introduction to the LNF
- Section 2 provides an introduction to National Reading and Numeracy Testing
There are three appendices at the end of the document which include a list of the consultation questions, a glossary of literacy terms and a glossary of numeracy terms.
The LNF is broken down into two components – one for literacy and one for numeracy. It also includes two further components for learners with additional learning needs.
You should also refer to the exemplification materials provided.
