The Children, Young People and Education Committee is conducting an inquiry into the Welsh Government’s approach of targeting funding on particular cohorts of pupils, primarily disadvantaged pupils through the Pupil Development Grant (PDG). The inquiry will also consider the complementary yet distinct Schools Challenge Cymru programme, which until its closure in March 2017 focused on schools facing the greatest challenges in improving.

The Research blog provides further data on Key Stage 4 attainment.
