Pîl Primary School succeeds in recent Estyn inspection

According to Estyn inspectors, learners at Pîl Primary School are supported by teaching staff and are making marked progress.

The primary school was visited by Estyn in July 2022, following a two-year exemption from Estyn inspections at schools across Wales due to the pandemic.

During the two-year period, Estyn developed its inspection procedures to support the renewal and reform in Welsh education.

New inspection reports focus on how well education providers are supporting a child to learn, rather than using the summative gradings used previously.

The current Estyn reporting format considers the following categories to judge a school:

  • No follow up
  • Estyn review
  • Significant improvement required
  • Special measures required

According to Estyn inspectors, Pîl Primary School is making sufficient progress and no follow-up action is necessary at the school.

Estyn recommendations for the school include improving opportunities for learners to develop their creative skills progressively, as well as refining teaching to allow pupils more independence in what and how they learn.

The local authority, alongside the Central South Consortium, has supported the school in creating an action plan to highlight how the recommendations will be addressed.

This is a fantastic result for the school! We are so very proud of what the teaching staff and learners have achieved together.

I want to pay tribute to the amazing work being done by teachers, pupils, governors, parents and carers - all of whom are making this school a success.

Following several challenging years, this is a fantastic recognition of the efforts of everyone at the school and its commitment to learning. Well done, Pîl Primary School!

Councillor Jon-Paul Blundell, the Cabinet Member for Education
