Wrexham Council has welcomed news that a local primary school has been removed from monitoring.

In 2019, Ysgol Sant Dunawd in Bangor-on-Dee was placed under review by the education inspectorate Estyn, after some areas were found to be “adequate and in need of improvement.”

However, the school has now been removed from monitoring after making progress.

Councillor Phil Wynn, Wrexham Council’s Lead Member for Education, says:

“Ysgol Sant Dunawd provides a wonderful learning environment for its children, and I’m extremely proud of the positive feedback from Estyn which reflects the tireless commitment and hard work of staff, governors, pupils and parents.

“Like every other educational establishment, the school will have faced a lot of additional challenges over the past two years due to the Covid pandemic, so it’s particularly impressive that they’ve been able to make such positive progress in difficult times.

“I’d like to thank the head teacher Sara Tate and everyone at the school for their tremendous work.”
