§ Mr. Win Griffiths
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has received on the difficulties of informing parents of the assessment of their children at key stage 3 of the national curriculum before the end of the summer term.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
Formal representations about this year's key stage 3 reporting arrangements have not been received. My officials have, however, established a small working group comprising representatives of the Welsh Joint Education Committee, local education authorities and the School Examinations and Assessment Council to develop the most efficient method of providing schools in Wales with the national curriculum assessment results to be used for reporting purposes.
