Event Summary

With a new inspection framework for Estyn in place since September 2022 and plans to increase the frequency of inspections, how is your school addressing school improvement?

Join us online for Senedd Insight’s Estyn Inspections Digital Conference. You will hear practical insight and expert guidance around the five key challenges for school improvement, as per Estyn’s summary report in September:

  • Curriculum for Wales implementation
  • Supporting pupil wellbeing
  • Tackling harassment and bullying in schools
  • Mitigating the impact of COVID-19
  • Tackling the poverty gap.

With Estyn’s full report due to be published in January, this full day, digital conference is a timely opportunity for leaders and experts to address the key barriers to school improvement.  Understand the new approach and learn from best practice across primary and secondary in Wales.
