NACE Cymru Challenge Award - Pencoed Primary School

In recognition of its commitment to getting the best out of high-achieving pupils, the school has achieved the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE) Cymru Challenge Award.

Representatives from NACE spent time at the school observing lessons and interviewing pupils, teachers, parents and governors. They were particularly impressed by the school’s strong leadership and the importance placed on the needs of more able learners.

NACE chief executive Sue Riley said: “Pencoed Primary School worked hard to win the award. It has shown itself to be committed to developing a school and providing an education where all pupils are challenged to be the best they can be.”

Pencoed Primary has become the 47th school in Wales and the 372nd school overall to achieve the accreditation from NACE.
