Sixth Senedd Priorities

Purpose of the consultation

In order to help inform the Children, Young People and Education Committee strategic planning and forward work programme, we are asking for your views on what you think, at this stage, our main priorities should be during the Sixth Senedd (2021-2026). We are keen to start this work as soon as possible, to make sure our plans take account of your views.


To submit your views, please download this proforma. Once completed, please email it to 


We know people take a well-earned break over the summer, and many education institutions also pause for a holiday, so we will run this consultation until Friday 17 September 2021 to make sure everyone has the opportunity to contribute when they return to work. Please be aware that it may not be possible to take into account responses received after this date.


Where overlaps between committee remits exist, we will ensure that relevant issues are shared with other committees.


A key priority for us is to ensure that children and young people’s voices are heard in our work. To do this in a meaningful way, we know that we need tailored and appropriate ways of engaging. In light of that, this consultation is not aimed at children and young people. Instead, we will run activities with children and young people in the autumn to help us understand their priorities for the Sixth Senedd. We will share the findings of this work with all Senedd committees. If you are – or your child is – under 16 and interested in being involved in this activity, please email us on to let us know. You can also use this mail address to send us your ideas on how you would like to see us engaging with children and young people – we have lots of ideas ourselves, but we’re also interested in yours!


Providing Written Evidence

The Senedd has two official languages, Welsh and English.


In line with the Senedd’s Official Languages Scheme the Committee requests that documents or written responses to consultations intended for publication or use in Senedd proceedings are submitted bilingually. When documents or written responses are not submitted bilingually, we will publish in the language submitted, stating that it has been received in that language only.


We expect other organisations to implement their own standards or schemes and to comply with their statutory obligation.


Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees.
