In this section of the website we aim to let you know how the Welsh Government is working to deliver a high-quality education system.

Our aim is to continually improve the quality of schools and education in Wales. From here you can find out more on how we plan to do that.

We believe that everyone has a part to play in ensuring our children and young people receive the education they deserve and need to prosper. As parents and carers it is vital you are aware of how we are trying to raise standards and play a part in that process. From this section you can find out about our latest plans and answers to some of your questions about your child’s education.

As well as the work of the Welsh Government we have provided links to other organisations that play a role in the education of children and young people, from nursery to university.

We will be continually updating this section but in the meantime let us know what you think and what other information you would like to see by e-mailing our DfES Enquiries mailbox: dcells.enquiries@wales.gsi.gov.uk.
