Since taking up post as Cabinet Secretary for Education, I have reflected on our recent educational attainment as well as on the long tail of challenges arising from the pandemic. I am clear that we need to aim higher, in particular to raise levels of attainment and close the gap for the poorest children in Wales.

I agree with my predecessor that we need a clearer focus on national priorities and a clear national role in leading improvement. Last week I set out my immediate areas of focus: mental health as a foundation for learning; continued roll-out of curriculum for Wales with additional support for the sector around design, progression and assessment; a firm legislative basis and strengthened implementation of our ALN reforms; and raising post-16 participation.
