The annual report of HM Inspector of Schools in Wales shows the quality of education and standards achieved by pupils has improved for the second consecutive year, reports The Western Mail (p5).

Roy James says that standards are satisfactory or above in about four-fifths of primary and secondary classes, and improvements in all age groups in maths, English, and Welsh have been recorded.

But the inspector's report says that around 20% of primary schools were still unsatisfactory in basic literacy and numeracy, and around 20% of teachers, mainly primary, must do better.

Welsh secretary William Hague said: 'It is welcome news that the amount of unsatisfactory teaching is on the decline, and that many more pupils are getting lessons rated satisfactorily.'
