The latest annual Estyn monitoring inspection at Orbis Ty Coryton shows pupils are supported to form ‘trusting relationships with staff’ and ‘respond positively to the caring and inclusive ethos of the school’.
Ty Coryton was also praised for ‘strongly’ promoting values of ‘tolerance and respect’, and for supporting its pupils in developing ‘valuable independence skills’ effectively too.
Kelly Price, Head of Education at Ty Coryton, was also commended for promoting stability within the school as a leader who is ‘passionate for staff to develop their skills’.
Kelly said: “Effective schooling of our children relies not just on the fantastic education staff we have, but also the dedication and commitment of our care, clinical, administrative, maintenance and other colleagues too.
“To have our hard work and dedication formally recognised by Estyn confirms that we are doing well to care and educate those we are here to support. It is as an absolute delight to the team here at Ty Coryton.”
The report also identified a culture where ‘leaders know the school very well’ and where the board of governors is ‘fully involved’ in the school’s self-evaluation process as a whole.
Multi-disciplinary working was also deemed to be ‘a significant strength of the school’ and ‘highly effective in meeting the needs of pupils’, with many engaging ‘consistently well’ in their learning and respond ‘enthusiastically’ as a result.
Mike Currier, CEO at Orbis Education and Care, said: “We’re truly thrilled that the team’s efforts to create a warm, welcoming and above all supportive environment for young people have been formally recognised. We are very proud of our team at Ty Coryton and congratulate them on their success.”
