THE performance of primary and secondary schools across the Tivyside area –has come under the spotlight in the annual Welsh Government National School Categorisation System.

It places schools into one of four colour-coded categories to demonstrate the level of support they need; green, yellow, amber and red.

The latest report shows that nationally more primary schools are falling into the green category meaning that they need the minimum amount of support; up to four days.

Nationally, 711 schools fall into the green category; 601 are rated as yellow (up to 10 days of support); 158 are ranked as amber (up to 15 days of support) and 47 as red (up to 25 days of support).

Education Minister Kirsty Williams said she was "encouraged" by the rising proportion of schools in the green category.

"This tells a story of improvement and increased capacity in the system that should be recognised," she said.

"These schools will have a key role to play in supporting others, sharing their expertise, skills, and good practice."
