Welsh local education authorities have been praised for across-the-board improvement in a report from Estyn, the Welsh education inspectorate.

The report covers all 22 LEAs and says: 'Overall standards in both primary and secondary schools have improved in all LEAs between 1996 and 1998, albeit at different rates and with fluctuations in certain indicators.

'Much of these improvements in schools are attributable to the work of schools themselves, but specific LEA initiatives and actions have also played their part.'

Chief inspector of schools Susan Lewis said: 'I am pleased to see schools have made significant progress. There nevertheless remains much to do.

'LEAs have a significant role to play by exerting the appropriate balance of pressure and support, drawing on and disseminating good practice.'
