Powys County Council has reacted immediately to today’s Estyn Inspection Report which has ordered Ysgol Maesydre to pull its socks up.
A special team of senior education officers has been set up to help strengthen the school which has been placed in special measures following the inspection.

The report identifies some good features but that a significant number of features are adequate or unsatisfactory. This has led to the Inspectors concluding that current performance and the capacity to improve are both unsatisfactory.

Cllr Stephen Hayes, Cabinet Member for Learning and Leisure, said: “We will be working with the school’s governing body to identify the reason for the inspection outcome and to ensure we achieve rapid improvements at the school.

“A project team of senior officers from the local authority and neighbouring authorities will be established to help with the process. Providing quality education for all of our youngsters is absolutely vital and we are confident that with hard work and the co-operation of the school, staff and governing body we can deliver the improvements demanded by Estyn.”

Formal action plans will be produced by both the school and the council, detailing steps to be taken to address the identified shortcomings.

Estyn will monitor the school on a termly basis until it is satisfied that the category of special measures no longer applies.
