How have the support categories for schools in Powys changed?

Primary Schools

Powys' primary schools have improved since 2014 and on average now require less than 8.5 days support instead of 12. This performance tracks the Welsh average, and Powys schools still need on average more days support than the Welsh average.

Secondary Schools

Powys' secondary schools now need on average more support than they did in 2014—just over 13.5 days against 11.5 days. Interestingly this reflects a polarising of the support categories in the county with four schools on green and three on red with a further three on amber.
