Education Improvement Grant: Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, and Minority Ethnic Children
The Children, Young People and Education Committee undertook an inquiry into Education Improvement Grant: Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, and Minority Ethnic Children.
The overall aim of this inquiry was 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 focused specifically on their educational outcomes and considered:
- How the Welsh Government monitored 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.
The Committee published its report on the findings of the inquiry:
