Results from the National Survey for Wales (April 2018-March 2019) have shown a marked increase in parents’ satisfaction with the education their children receive.

There has been a 6% increase in satisfaction with secondary schools, to 81% in 2018-19 from 75% in 2017-18.

90% of parents said they were satisfied with their child’s primary school, up from 88% in 2017-18.

The survey also shows that:

  • 94% of parents believe their child is happy at primary school, and 80% believe the same at secondary school.
  • 89% of parents believe primary school prepares their child well for the next stage of education, and 76% believe the same at secondary school.
  • 89% of parents believe primary school encourages their child to reach their full potential, and 78% believe the same at secondary school.
  • 94% of parents believe primary school helps their child develop into a well-rounded individual, and 80% believe the same at secondary school.
  • 89% of parents believe there is a high standard of teaching at their child’s primary school, and 76% believe the same at secondary school.

Jane Dodds, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, said:

“The Welsh Liberal Democrats have recognised the need to create an education system that is a source of national pride and public confidence. Of course there is still progress to be made but I believe these figures show a move in the right direction.”
