Recommendations to drive up performance for GCSE English Language

Following an investigation into the variability in outcomes between centres in Wales for GCSE English Language, the Welsh Government’s School Standards and Delivery Division has made available recommendations on how outcomes can be improved in the future.
Monday 17 December 2012

Recommendations to schools, local authorities and consortia include:

  • Developing strategic plans to improve spelling, punctuation, grammar and use of standard English;
  • Better use of pupil tracking to ensure early intervention where necessary;
  • Improved sharing of best practice between schools; and
  • The development of learner’s skills in taking controlled assessments.

There are also recommendations for the Welsh Government to drive improvement in GCSE English Language which include providing resources through Learning Wales, building capacity of consortia and close monitoring of the implementation of the recommendations.

The full recommendations are available on the Welsh Government’s website.

Education Minister Leighton Andrews said:

“We’ve put forward these recommendations as we do not want to see standards of GCSE English Language fall in Wales.

“These recommendations by my School Standards and Delivery Division are practical and if implemented properly and promptly could make a real difference to Level 2 achievement in the future.”
