Estyn Comments:

Effective school support for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils – case studies of good practice (February 2020):

“Staff at Ysgol Eirias have shared research and successful practice in supporting LAC with cluster primary schools to benefit a wider number of pupils in the area. Taking a whole school approach, leaders across the cluster shared the vision of ‘Nurture UK’ that no child fails through lack of nurture and educational opportunity.”

The professional learning continuum: mentoring in initial teacher education (October 2018):

“The school has identified career development pathways for staff. This includes a mentoring pathway to support the development of relevant skills, and ensure the ongoing professional development required for mentors, or for those who see this as a future development pathway.”

A levels in sixth forms and further education colleges (November 2018):

“The school uses a range of robust internal and external data to evaluate performance and to formulate strategic action plans for A level performance at whole-school and faculty level. Leaders also make effective use of findings from lesson observations, work scrutiny, and conversations with sixth form learners to evaluate their performance and provision at A level. Over time, the school has sustained strong learner outcomes at A level across most performance indicators.”

Estyn Comments from the last Inspection October 2014:

Good features in the school’s current performance include:

  • good performance in most indicators in key stage 4 over the last three years, which compares well with the average for similar schools;
  • the very positive attitudes to learning shown by pupils;
  • consistently effective teaching that contributes significantly to the outcomes achieved by pupils;
  • the very good progress made by nearly all pupils in Welsh second language at key stages 3 and 4 and in the sixth form and
  • the caring environment, which has a positive impact on many aspects of pupils’ wellbeing and personal development.

The prospects for improvement are good because:

  • the school has a strong culture of self-evaluation and continuous improvement
