Achievement for All Quality Mark

Ysgol Bryn Castell are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the Achievement for All Quality Mark which is a national accolade that recognises the schools work in improving the well-being, resilience and self-esteem of our pupils. We are only the 2nd school in Wales to achieve this.


Achievement for All is a movement focused on educational change; building a world which all children are seen as having potential, and where every child is enabled to be the best that they can be regardless of background, challenge or need. The Quality Mark Award recognises the impressive work being done by the school to improve progress in reading, writing and maths for all pupils, particularly those with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities.


Schools are assessed for the Quality Mark Award within the second year of the Schools Programme. The award focuses on a variety of categories such as strategic planning, quality of teaching and learning, effective use of interventions, pupil progress and community relationships.


John Reilly, Regional Director at Achievement for All, said:


"We are thrilled to present Ysgol Bryn Castell with this much deserved award. It was particularly impressive in Ysgol Bryn Castell how the individual needs of each pupil are addressed. The school works with very vulnerable learners and does everything it can to help them feel secure and to thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Our programmes are designed to be a whole school improvement tool and Ysgol Bryn Castell has shown a continued commitment and success in improving outcome for their children."


"Achievement for All believes that every child can progress, and through our programmes we hope to enable every child to be the best they they can be regardless of background, challenge or need. A huge congratulations to teachers, parents, carers and children at Ysgol Bryn Castell for all their hard work."


Ysgol Bryn Castell would like to thank all parents and carers who have been involved with Achievement for All so far and look forward to continuing to work with you to help our pupils to achieve to the best of their ability.
