Pencoed Primary School Working together for each and every child

School Categorisation


As you may be aware, all schools in Wales have been given a colour categorisation. There are four categories green, yellow, amber and red.

We have been awarded a yellow category, which means that we have been identified as an effective school that knows what it needs to do to improve even further.

 Schools are judged on their standards and their capacity to improve. The standards section is informed by the attainment pupils reach in year 2 and year 6 and includes pupils with additional learning needs.

I have included below the guide the Welsh Government has produced to help parents and carers understand this system.

If you would like any further information, please contact the school
