Schools and other providers of education and training in Wales have been recognised by Estyn for their excellence at an awards evening. Staff at these organisations received a certificate and congratulations from Meilyr Rowlands, Chief Inspector and Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education at a ceremony held on 12 October.
As part of an annual celebration recognising and sharing excellence in education, the inspectorate recognised the schools and non-maintained settings that achieved ‘excellent’ in the majority of their inspection judgements and the local authority education service that was judged ‘excellent’ for its leadership and management in 2017-18.
Meilyr Rowlands says,
Celebrating the excellence in our education system and recognising how it was achieved will help to drive improvement across Wales. The Estyn awards both commend hard work and commitment while highlighting strategies that lead to success. On the Estyn website we’ve shared the success stories of the schools and other providers that achieved excellence during 2017-2018 inspections to inspire others.
