Our Aims

Our 2020 aims, agreed with the five local authorities are that:

  1. Children and young people achieve and sustain outcomes that are the highest performing in Wales at most levels in 2018 and sustain it to 2020
  2. Schools show sustained improvement at all levels rivalling the best in the UK by 2020
  3. Vulnerable children increasingly close the gap on their peers and do so faster than elsewhere in Wales
  4. Teaching is excellent for most children, particularly so in schools within the most deprived communities
  5. Inspection outcomes show increased levels of excellence in teaching and leadership and in judgements on schools’ capacity to improve
  6. The region is recognised for the quality of its school-led curriculum, professional learning and leadership and its work with the higher education sector and initial teacher training providers
  7. There are wider partnerships involving business, the community and parents working with schools to reinforce aspiration
  8. The region works with others to drive up standards and capacity for improving teaching and leadership as part of delivering the new Curriculum for Wales
