SULLY Primary school has received a glowing report from school inspectors Estyn.

Estyn’s report speaks highly of many areas of the school’s teaching and offers special praise for events such as the annual garden sale and international cafe. Inspectors felt that these “provide opportunities for pupils to use their skills in a real life context which impacts positively on pupils’ wellbeing and enriches the curriculum.”

The leadership of the school was also praised. The report found that “the headteacher has established a clear vision, which all staff share and understand. The senior leadership team drives and implements many policies and new initiatives effectively, including those that meet national and local priorities.”

The school’s headteacher, Kathryn Hart, said: “We work very hard to ensure that our pupils have a first class learning environment and so I am delighted that the good work of all members of staff at Sully Primary School has been recognised by the inspectors.”

Following the publication of the report, Councillor Chris Elmore, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “The Estyn inspectors have found that the school has many strengths and no areas requiring significant improvement.

"The Council is focused on improving learning outcomes for pupils in the Vale and I would like to commend all of the staff, both at the school and within the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Learning and Skills department, who have worked hard to achieve such a positive report."
