Bangor Mail - - YOUR COMMUNITY -

STAFF and pupils at Ys­gol Fri­ars, in Ban­gor, are cel­e­brat­ing the very good re­port they re­ceived from Estyn, fol­low­ing the school’s in­spec­tion in Novem­ber.

Fri­ars was judged “good” in all five of the key in­spec­tion ar­eas.

The in­spec­tors noted that the school is par­tic­u­larly ef­fec­tive in set­ting high ex­pec­ta­tions for pupils’ be­hav­iour, their at­ti­tudes to learn­ing and the stan­dard of their work.

The in­spec­tors par­tic­u­larly praised pupils’ be­hav­iour. They de­scribed the young­sters as “very im­pres­sive” dur­ing the visit and the re­port says that they be­have very well and that many are com­mit­ted learn­ers “who make strong progress in their stud­ies and dis­play a clear sense of am­bi­tion”. They found that pupils en­joyed school, felt safe and that the school deals well with the very few in­ci­dents of bul­ly­ing which oc­cur.

Head­teacher Neil Fo­den said: “We are de­lighted with this re­port which is a trib­ute to the hard work of the whole school com­mu­nity, par­tic­u­larly the pupils and the staff who teach them. We’d also like to thank the par­ents who give us so much sup­port.”

“We reg­u­larly ask pupils and par­ents their opin­ions, but it’s great to be recog­nised of­fi­cially for the good work we do.”

The in­spec­tors only made three rec­om­men­da­tions, which were to in­crease toi­let fa­cil­i­ties, to en­sure that the pro­vi­sion for Welsh matches all pupils’ abil­i­ties and pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence and to make self-eval­u­a­tion pro­ce­dures more con­sis­tent.
