BAND gradings assessing the level of support needed by all schools in Wales across the next 12 months have been released.

The National School Categorisation System grades both primary and secondary schools using a colour code, to determine the amount of government support each school will receive over the course of the next year.

Schools that fall into the green category are judged to be performing strongly and will be granted up to four days of support. Schools in the yellow band will receive up to 10 days, amber will receive up to 15, while those in red – adjudged to need the most intensive intervention – will be given as much as 25 days worth of support.

The Vale of Glamorgan no longer has any primary schools under the red category, with High Street Primary School being upgraded to amber.

Bryn Hafren Comprehensive, the Vale's only secondary school to be placed under the red category last year, remains in red.
