HC Deb 23 November 1982 vol 32 cc409-10W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish an equivalent for Wales of the publication "Aspects of Secondary Education" on the interaction between organisations and the curriculum.

Mr. Michael Roberts

No. The conclusions of "Aspects of Secondary Education in England", which was published in December 1979 following a survey of a sample of secondary schools, are generally applicable also in Wales. The report has been complemented by the publication in Wales of a number of discussion documents on the organisation and work of secondary schools concentrating separately on arrangements in years Ito III, years IV to V, sixth form education, the roles of senior staff, and pastoral care. All have been well received and together with the continuing work of Her Majesty's Inspectorate in schools have encouraged the spread of good practice in secondary education.
