A local primary school has received a strong Estyn report following a visit from the inspectors in January.

Llangedwyn School has welcomed the findings after Estyn judged the wellbeing and attitudes to learning of the pupils and the care, support and guidance offered by the school to be ‘good’.

Standards, teaching and learning and Leadership and Management were judged to be ‘adequate’ and needing improvement, with the school drawing up an action plan to implement the inspectors’ recommendations.

The report stated that Llangedwyn School is a “happy place where all pupils are valued and cared for”.

They found that it is an ‘inclusive learning environment that successfully promotes Welsh heritage and culture”.

In the school, the pupils are “encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to play a full part in the life of the school” with “a wealth of opportunities to enhance and enrich the pupils learning” provided. 

The Chair of Governors, Chris Richards said: “We welcome the report. It reflects the hard work put in by pupils, staff, parents, and the community to make this a great place to learn. We are looking forward to making it an even better school in the future.”

Despite a recent period of uncertainty, the Acting Executive Headteacher has “provided effective and supportive leadership and quickly established a positive strategic vision”, according to the report. Staff are described as “dedicated and conscientious” and the Governing Body “is very supportive of the school”.

Estyn recommendations include the strengthening of approaches to teaching reading in foundation phase, ICT skills across the school, the development of challenge through the work delivered to pupils and by the Governing Body.

The Acting Executive Head Teacher, Catherine Hart, added: “I am delighted that the inspection has identified the nurturing environment of our school and the quality of the learning opportunities available to the pupils. We are looking forward to working on our recommendations together, to keep moving forward.”
