Education: More schools ‘green’ in Wales performance ratings

BBC is reporting that close to half of primary schools in Wales are now rated in the best “green” category, according to the latest annual categorisation ratings.

They show 49% of primaries need the least support, 6% better than in 2019.

But the ratings also show 24 secondary schools (11.7%) fall into the “red” category, needing the most help.

The overall figures show:

– A total of 609 primary schools are in the green support category – 66 more schools than last year

– The number of special schools in the green support category has stayed the same at 21, while one special school is in the red support category.
