The Welsh Government says a proposal for national model for assessing schools would work alongside the current banding system.
“Categorisation by consortia is not new. All consortia categorise their schools already, but they use four different systems.
A single national categorisation model would ensure that the regional consortia are assessing schools in a consistent way. This would work alongside Banding as it already does. As we said earlier, as and when we’re in a position to make an announcement we will until then we have no further comment.
Ill informed speculation isn't helpful as it causes confusion for parents and teachers. Banding works; the improved results for Band 4 and 5 schools show that. Why would we ditch a successful policy?
