Bryn schoolchildren help launch council’s 10-year education plan

CARMARTHENSHIRE County Council’s ambitious 10-year education strategy has been officially launched at Ysgol Y Bryn on St David’s Day.

Education Sir Gȃr 2022-2032 sets out the council’s aspirations for learners and staff for the next 10 years.

The strategy aims to build on the good work that has already been carried out in Carmarthenshire in order to deliver the same opportunity and consistently excellent outcomes for all learners.

Ysgol Y Bryn received significant investment back in 2007 under the council’s Modernising Education Programme, with a new modern £3.8million school building fit for 21st century learning and teaching.

The school has made huge strides in recent years and was recently praised by inspectors for its newly established vision and values, and the strong relationships that have been built with the school community.

The contributions of all staff, pupils and parents make Ysgol Y Bryn a successful, thriving place to learn, where the wellbeing, knowledge and skills of all are highly valued; pupils achieve good levels of progress as their teachers’ design and deliver learning opportunities that are encouraging and engaging.

Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services Cllr Glynog Davies said: “Ysgol Y Bryn is a vibrant, inclusive and inspiring place to learn, and the pupils happily engage in the broad range of learning experiences.

“I was delighted to hear that the governing body play a very important role at the school, knowing the pupils, families and staff very well and ensuring that all are supported to progress and develop.

“It is important too that pupils’ share their views on how and what they like to learn and as a result, the outdoor learning spaces at Ysgol Y Bryn have been transformed over the past few years; the wonderful learning zones effectively encourage imaginative learning through play whilst the ‘roads’ and activity areas encourage healthy exercise as a part of daily routines.

“The excellent work that is being carried out at Ysgol Y Bryn is what our 10-year strategy and our vision for education in Carmarthenshire is all about – providing our learners with the best possible education experience and equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need for the next step on their journey.

“There are over 27,000 learners registered in our schools and the council has a vital role to provide the highest quality services to children, young people, families and learners in ways that best meet their specific needs.

“We want to support our young people to fulfil their learning potential and we will continually strive to offer high standards of comprehensive education, in modern environments that are fully equipped for 21st century learning.”
