Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The National Assembly for Wales’ Children, Young People and Education Committee is undertaking an inquiry into Education Improvement Grant: Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, and Minority Ethnic Children.

 

The overall aim of this inquiry is to consider the impact of amalgamating the previously ring-fenced grants into the new Education Improvement Grant from 2015-16 on Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, and Minority Ethnic children. The inquiry will focus specifically on their educational outcomes and will consider:

  • how the Welsh Government monitors the way local authorities use the Education Improvement Grant and how the new, amalgamated grant supports Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, and Minority Ethnic children, with specific reference to improving educational outcomes;
  • the effectiveness of other Welsh Government policies and strategies for supporting the education of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, and Minority Ethnic children; and
  • any key issues arising from amalgamating the other previously separate grants into the Education Improvement Grant.
