ST JULIAN’S SCHOOL | Estyn Report

St Julian's - EstynDear Parent/Carer,

Our official inspection report will be published on Friday 6th February 2015.  The headlines will read that our current performance is adequate and our prospects for improvement are also adequate.  I hope that you will be able to take some time to read through the entire report.  Estyn use the word adequate when they feel “strengths outweigh areas for improvement.”

The inspection team came to visit the school in the first week of December 2014.  They acknowledged many strengths in our daily practice but also identified some key areas where we need to improve.

Newport Half Marathon – St David’s Day

Miss Hook, Mrs Waters, Mrs Handley, Mrs Lund and Mrs Boote (pictured below) will all be running in the Newport Half Marathon this Sunday.  The race takes the 3000 runners from the centre of town up past Glan Usk and the Gleiblands, through Caerleon, back past Sainsbury’s and then all along the River Usk to the SDR bridge and back to the finish line at the Riverfront. The race, now in it’s third year, is a great event for Newport and raises money for St David’s Hospice Care. We wish all the runners luck – Happy St David’s Day!
