"Wellbeing of both learners and education professionals is hugely important for education in Wales. The Minister saying this today, in her first Education Minister's Questions of the Year, is hugely important. We look forward to the Welsh Government delivering on these promises, and making schools "a happy place to work and learn in".

"Our National Mission places huge expectations on education professionals, especially in terms of workload, which can have a knock-on effect on wellbeing. We have huge changes in terms of the new Curriculum, new law on additional learning needs, changes to assessments and many other expectations at a time when budgets are tight.

"Therefore, we hope that the Minister will realise her aim, and that workload for education professionals will be given the attention it deserves. We look forward to working with the Minister on workload as a priority for 2019."
