To propose that the Senedd:

1.     Notes the Annual Report for 2020-21 of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education and Training in Wales that was laid in Table Office on 7 April 2022.

2.     Welcomes that the report recognises the resilience and perseverance of the education workforce and how they have been flexible, creative and adapted in innovative ways to support learners.

3.     Welcomes that ‘all providers prioritised the wellbeing of their learners’ and continued to strengthen links with families and communities.

4.        Notes that we should not underestimate the impact of the pandemic on wellbeing of learners, staff and leaders.

The following amendment has been tabled:

Amendment 1 - Sian Gwenllian (Arfon)

Add as new points at end of motion:

Regrets Estyn’s findings that “the divide between pupils from disadvantaged and more privileged backgrounds became more pronounced over the course of the pandemic.”

Believes that the disparities outlined in the report will be further exacerbated by the cost-of-living crisis and calls on the Welsh Government to work with Estyn to increase efforts to ensure measures to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds in schools are implemented urgently.
