Ysgol Capelulo

Estyn Report Summary

Ysgol Capelulo went into Estyn Monitoring in 2019 and were deemed to have made strong progress and came out of monitoring in March 2021 (delayed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic). 

Some of their main findings were: The headteacher and staff succeed in creating a homely and inclusive ethos for pupils. The quality of care, support and guidance provided by the school is effective and ensures that pupils develop a sound understanding of values, such as honesty and fairness.

As they move through the school, most pupils including those with additional learning needs make sound progress from their differing starting points and achieve expected standards.  There is an effective working relationship between adults and pupils, which fosters a successful learning environment.

Teachers plan interesting activities that encourage pupils to participate and work hard. Nearly all pupils develop positive attitudes to learning, settle quickly to work and interact together well. Most show good levels of concentration in their work and they are keen to learn.  Teachers plan valuable opportunities for pupils to use their literacy skills in a variety of curricular areas.

Leaders ensure that the whole school community is committed to the school’s motto of ‘Enriching Life Through Learning’ and this is reflected in the positive ethos evident in all classrooms. Governors are supportive of the school’s work, meet regularly and fulfil their duties conscientiously. They are aware of priorities in the school development plan. This enables them to act as critical friends.
