This consultation ended 11 October 2012.
Details of outcome
The Minister for Education and Skills has made raising standards of literacy and numeracy in schools a priority.
In his keynote address 'Raising Schools Standards' on 29 June 2011 to the Institute of Welsh Affairs he announced the intention to introduce a new National Literacy and Numeracy Framework for all learners aged 5 to 14.
The recently published National Literacy Programme and the soon to be published National Numeracy Programme set out the actions the Welsh Government intends to implement to improve literacy and numeracy standards in Wales. The plans for a statutory national framework and for a system of national testing are integral to both programmes.
This consultation provides stakeholders and members of the public the opportunity to comment and seeks views on the Welsh Government's proposals for the following:
- a statutory National Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF)
- National Reading and Numeracy Tests.
