Small schools with fewer than 100 pupils need to take radical steps to survive, the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers has said, reports The Western Mail (section 2 p3).

The union says that such schools need to work together and even unite if they are to stave off the threat of closure.

The advise is based on the results of a two year joint research project with accountants Coopers and Lybrand which aimed to identify ways of managing small schools through shared arrangements to make them more effective financially and educationally.

Its main recommendation is that small schools form themselves into confederations or similar close partnerships, reports the Mail.
