Improving Attendance and Behaviour in Wales: The Action Plan
Reid, Ken
Educational Studies, v36 n3 p233-247 Jul 2010
The National Behaviour and Attendance Review (NBAR) Report for Wales was produced in 2008. Subsequently, its recommendations were accepted by the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) which established an Implementation Group to prepare its response in detail. A year later in April 2009 this Group presented its findings and recommendations to WAG in the form of an Action Plan. The Action Plan was entitled Behaving and Attending: Responding to the National Behaviour and Attendance Review. The intention of the Action Plan is to help to shape the direction of future developments on the management of attendance and behaviour in Wales over the foreseeable future. The Action Plan's recommendations are sub-divided into three: short, medium and long-term solutions. The Plan's strategy is broken down into eight key areas. These are on: attendance, behaviour, children and young people's rights, early intervention, literacy, multi and inter-agency working, school effectiveness and finally, on training and development. This paper outlines and considers these ideas, places the work into a UK-wide research context and the Welsh educational policy strategy. It also indicates areas where future pilot projects and research will be necessary.
