Primary school is a dynamic and highly effective learning community

Pupils at a Cwm Glas Primary School in Swansea are proud of their school and show high levels of enthusiasm during lessons, according to inspectors.


As they move through school they make good progress in their learning while teachers plan effectively to provide purposeful and exciting learning experiences.

Estyn inspectors found the care, support and guidance provided to pupils was excellent and said the school's work in ensuring support for vulnerable pupils and families, as well as parents and carers, is exemplary.

Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Lifelong Learning, Cllr Jennifer Raynor, said: "There were many highlights in the Estyn Report but it is particularly pleasing the inspectors noted the strong improvement strategies that have been put in place are having a positive impact. Everyone associated with Cwm Glas can be proud of the results of this inspection."

Efforts by the school to engage with parents is so good that it has been asked to prepare a case study to share its work with other schools across Wales.

Inspectors marked the school as good in all other areas they looked at.

They said: "Nearly all pupils take great pride in their school and greet adults and their peers confidently and respectfully. Nearly all pupils like coming to school and behave very well in all aspects of their school life.

"Teachers across the school plan effectively to provide purposeful and exciting learning experiences for pupils.

"The new headteacher and deputy headteacher contribute well to the strategic direction of the school and share their vision effectively with the whole school community."

 Cwm Glas headteacher Mr Neil Craven-Lashley  said: "We are very proud of the excellent report which clearly shows our school is a happy, safe and inclusive place to learn. I would like to congratulate our dedicated staff, the wonderful pupils and their families, carers and the wider community for their continued support."
