Well done to all our pupils, staff and governors!
On the 20th & 21st June 2018, 8/9 representatives from the EAS (Education Achievement Service) visited the school to conduct a KS3 Curriculum Review.
They observed lessons, walked around the school, spoke to pupils, looked in their books and interviewed a range of leaders and staff from across the school.
The EAS KS3 Curriculum Review Report highlighted a large number of positive features including:
- At both KS3 & KS4 standards in the performance of pupils in both English and Mathematics demonstrate a continuing upward trend.
- The school has made strong progress in terms of engaging pupils’ interest and how well it develops their skills, knowledge and understanding as they move through the school.
- Current standards are judged to be strong for literacy and numeracy.
- The school has made strong progress in the strategic planning of broad balanced opportunities and experiences for pupils to progressively develop their skills in literacy and numeracy across the curriculum.
- In the sessions observed, all pupils are respectful of the teacher and of each other.
- Standards of behaviour are also good in communal areas and corridors.
- There was a calm atmosphere both inside and outside classrooms with pupils focused on learning.
- Pupils feel empowered by their learning experiences.
They also judged the school to have made “strong” progress in all 5 Estyn
recommendations from their visit in June 2017.
