A headmaster who’s school has fallen from Band 1 to band 4 in one year says the system is questionable.
Gwyn Tudur of Ysgol Tryfan, in Bangor says his school is being punished for it’s exceptionally good performance in 2011.
We are obviously disappointed the system of branding is high profile but it is a limited view of a school, parents I think, have a much more holistic apparoach.
Banding takes only one year’s performance into consideration and I question the value of it because of the effect on moral of people in the profession and any system that has such inconsistent results.
Jumping from 1 to 4 or from 5 to 2 – is that a true indicator of a school’s position?
