Schools information for parents/carers
We want to keep you up to date on what we are doing to improve our schools and offer advice and tips on how you can support your child.
Our Education begins at home (external link) campaign aims to provide you with information on supporting your child at home. Helping with homework, attending parents evenings and asking how they get on in school can all help with their school enjoyment.
Through our reading and numeracy tests (external link), new GCSEs in English, maths and Welsh and our continuing review of the qualifications system, our aim is to equip your children with the skills they will need throughout their life.
You can also keep up to date with key information through our Twitter channel, @DfESWales (external link).
