Congratulations as primary schools pass with flying colours

Pupils and staff at two primary schools in Swansea have been congratulated on their inspection reports.


Inspectors said wellbeing and attitudes to learning were excellent at Terrace Road Primary School in Mount Pleasant while it was rated good in the other four inspection areas.

Pennard Primary School was rated good across the board.

Estyn said: "The ethos in Terrace Road Primary School is highly inclusive and caring. The school places pupils' wellbeing at the centre of its work. They enter the school building every morning with enthusiasm and pride for their school."

It found although many pupils start school with skills below the expected levels for their age most make good progress thanks to good teaching and a broad and balanced range of interesting learning opportunities.

Pennard Primary was also praised for its teaching and quality of lessons and for the progress pupils make as they move through school.

The report states: "The school is a safe, happy and caring community that nurtures pupils' personal, social, spiritual and moral skills successfully. There is a very positive ethos of trust and teamwork."

Cllr Jen Raynor, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Education Improvement, Learning and Skills, said: "Terrace Road is a phenomenal school. A high proportion of pupils are eligible for free school meals, many have additional learning needs and 29 different languages are spoken there but pupils make very good progress thanks to the education they receive.

"Pennard is also a very good school and I would like to congratulate the headteachers, all the staff, the pupils and their families at both schools on these inspection reports.

"Right across Swansea pupils are receiving a very good quality education as can be seen from the reports that are being produced by Estyn."
