Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

"Banding is a central element of the Minister’s new accountability model for compulsory education in Wales".

While the Minister has stated categorically that banding is NOT about labelling schools, it would be naïve of any institution not to track how their overall performance is likely to be measured.

With pupil recruitment so significant, the public perception of what banding implies can not be dismissed.

This innovative meeting will explore how the fourteen data sets are calculated, methods for tracking and modelling and successful interventions to ensure progress.
