A primary school in Senghenydd has received a glowing report from schools inspectorate Estyn.
Nant-y-Parc Primary School gained top marks for all the five inspection areas: standards; wellbeing and attitudes to learning; teaching and learning experiences; care, support and guidance; leadership and management.
The report published said: “The headteacher provides innovative, strong and caring leadership with effective support from the deputy headteacher and the senior leadership team.
“Across the school, most teachers plan highly imaginative and stimulating lessons that spark pupils’ interest and engage them extremely well in their learning.”
The inspectors recommended to “improve pupils ability to draft and redraft their written work” and to “share the examples of highly effective teaching more effectively across all classes.”
Nant-y-Parc Primary School headteacher Nicola Davies said: “We are extremely proud that Estyn have recognised the excellent work that takes place in our school.
“This ensures that high levels of engagement and enjoyment is at the heart of our success. It is a privilege to work alongside such a talented, committed team and the report has brought us great pride.”
Cabinet Member for Education and Achievement, Cllr Barbara Jones said: “Pupils, staff and governors should all be thrilled to receive such a positive endorsement.”
