The Welsh Government published the latest set of school categories last week.
Schools in Wales are placed into four colour-coded categories which determines how much support a particular school needs to maintain or improve upon its current performance:
- Green – A highly effective school requiring the minimum level of support at 4 days.
- Yellow – An effective school which requires up to 10 days of support.
- Amber – A school in need of improvement and requiring additional support of up to 15 days.
- Red – A school which requires urgent improvement and more intensive support of up to 25 days; schools in this category are often at risk of being placed into (or are already in) special measures.
