What is this?
Every year, the Chief Inspector of schools in Wales writes a report on what inspectors have found when we inspect schools and other education providers.
This site includes resources that pupil groups or School Councils can use to discuss specific topics or to think about how effective they are in their work.
We have worked with pupils in secondary schools to gather their ideas on the principles of effective School Councils or pupil groups. Have a look to see if you agree with their ideas. Does your Council/group do these things? Do these need to be adapted for primary schools? Link to Principles
We have chosen a few topics that have come up in the Annual Report that we think pupils would find interesting to discuss. Remember to download the forms to make a note of your ideas and actions.

What should we discuss?
Do we learn enough about Welsh history, including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic history, identity and culture?
Why should we discuss this?
When inspecting, we have found that pupils, when given the opportunity, enjoy learning about Welsh history and about the history, identity and culture of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people. However, in the majority of schools pupils do not know very much about the history of their local area or Wales. In most schools, pupils don't know much about the history of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people and communities, particularly in Wales. What happens in your school?Close
