Raising Standards and Tackling Workload
The Welsh Government is a signatory to the Agreement and a member of the Workforce Agreement Monitoring Group (WAMG). We have been working in partnership with local authorities in Wales to support schools as they implement the necessary changes.
Schools have made good progress in meeting their obligations to have in place plans to deliver the contractual changes by the statutory dates. This reflects the very significant efforts of both schools and also LEA Change Co-ordinators who provide schools with support, practical advice and training.
We want to build on this good progress – and continue to support schools as they consider their school staffing structures and improve and refine their remodelling strategies to ensure that these are robust and sustainable for the future.
A range of key guidance materials and information has been developed to support remodelling schools since 2003, and these continue to provide valuable advice to schools as they plan for the future.
These support materials have been supplemented by a range of case studies that describe some of the remodelling strategies already implemented by schools in Wales. We hope to add to these as we continue to share experience between schools.
