School Categorisation

Dear Parents,

I’m sure that many of you have already heard or read about the Welsh Government’s new colour categorisation of schools. Every school in Wales have, within the last seven days, been categorised: GREEN (the 15% best and most effective schools), YELLOW (the 50% good and effective schools), AMBER (the 29% of schools in need of improvement), or RED
(the 5% of schools in need of the greatest improvement).

It certainly is a source of great pride and satisfaction to us all at Ysgol Gymraeg Melin Gruffydd that we have been recognised as a GREEN school. GREEN SCHOOLS, by definition:

• know themselves well and identify and implement their own priorities for improvement;
• have resilience within the staff team;
• will be challenged to move towards or sustain excellence;
• have the capacity to lead other schools effectively;
• will be rewarded by greater autonomy;

The School Categorisation System is based upon three steps:

• How well the school is performing in relation to pupils’ standards;
• The school’s ability and capacity to self-improve, with a clear focus on leadership, learning and teaching;
• The combination of the two steps will lead to a colour categorisation of the school.

I’m sure you’ll all agree that this is fantastic news for us all; but though we are delighted with our green categorisation, parents should be in no doubt that the school will not rest on its laurels, but will strive for further school improvement so that we can maintain our status, year on year, as a GREEN SCHOOL.

Mr Illtud James
