What Estyn think

The school received their last inspection from Estyn in June 2019. They rated wellbeing and attitudes to learning at the school as excellent and said it is good in all other inspection areas, and we were delighted that Swansea Council and the South Wales Evening Post were keen to share the good news.

The report stated that the school plans the curriculum effectively and teachers develop pupils’ skills successfully through a wide range of interesting activities stating that the school had responded well to the challenges of developing a new curriculum for schools in Wales. We are also delighted that our provision for outdoor learning was recognised as effective practice and now appears as a case study on the Estyn website:

The use of outdoor learning to enhance pupils’ attitudes to learning and improve their wellbeing is excellent and this ensures that pupils are developing into confident learners.”

We were also pleased that the report outlines that the governing body makes an effective contribution to the school’s development and partnership working is a strong feature at Crwys Primary, stating that the school was at the ‘heart of the community’, and that a strong and successful relationship existed between home and school.

Pupils, staff and the school’s wider community can feel very proud of this report and I would like to thank them all for their continued support. I would also like to thank everyone who has forwarded their congratulations. These have included Director of Education, Nick Williams, local Assembly Member Rebecca Evans, Member of Parliament for the Gower Tonia Antoniazzi and Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Education Improvement, Learning and Skills, Jennifer Raynor.
