The inspection of City and County of Swansea Local Education Authority Services took place 8-17 June 2009.
Following the inspection that was carried out, Estyn have this morning (07/09/09) published their report on our Education Services. This is a hugely encouraging report and credit should go to the hard work of our education officers, headteachers, teachers, support staff, pupils and partners.
Recent A-level and GCSE results were excellent yet again, but this report shows our commitment to pupils with additional learning needs is just as unwavering as it is to the high-flyers. It's our aim to give all pupils the best possible tools they need to succeed and these findings suggest we're realising that goal in many ways, and that we've been successful in ensuring no pupils are left behind.
The report gives us top marks to our promotion of social inclusion and wellbeing in schools, as well as for the support we make available to children with additional learning needs. The report describes the support on hand for vulnerable groups as excellent, and points to the success of including targets in strategic planning to reduce the number of 16 and 17 year-olds not in full-time education, employment or training. This, the report says, has led to the number of people in full-time education in Swansea improving at a faster rate than the rest of Wales.
Additional areas of praise within the report include:
Many thanks for your continued dedication and you should all feel proud of the contribution you have made to this outcome.
