STAFF pupils and parents have welcomed the findings of Llangedwyn School's Estyn Inspection in January.

During the Inspection, 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, leadership and management were judged to be adequate and needing improvement.

The report stated that Llangedwyn School is a "happy place where all pupils are valued and cared for". Inspectors found that it is an "inclusive learning environment that successfully promotes Welsh heritage and culture" and "pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to play a full part in the life of the school".

According to the report the school "provides a wealth of opportunities to enhance and enrich the pupils learning".

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 Catherine Hart has "provided effective and supportive leadership and quickly established a positive strategic vision", say ithe Estyn inspectors.

Staff are also described as "dedicated and conscientious" and the Governing Body "is very supportive of the school".

Estyn have provided several recommendations required to further improve provision. These 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 school is now drawing up an action plan and is looking forward to making these improvements for the benefit of all its pupils.

Acting executive headteacher, Catherine Hart said: "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."
