Pupils' well-being is at the heart of Afon-Y-Felin Primary School and nearly all enjoy attending school. Pupils state that the school is a calm and caring place where they feel safe and able to speak to staff if they feel worried or anxious. Most pupils are polite and treat adults and each other with respect.

Over their time in school and from low starting points, many pupils, including those with additional learning needs (ALN), make good use of the wide range of learning experiences on offer and make good progress in most areas of learning. Many pupils are well motivated to learn and collaborate enthusiastically on interesting topics. They enjoy helping leaders to make decisions about improving their school and are very proud of ...the important changes they have made.

Leaders have created a good team ethos amongst staff who successfully support pupils' well-being. They have formed close working partnerships with many outside agencies, earned the confidence of parents and established a range of effective approaches to identify the correct provision so that pupils can achieve. Leaders and staff are beginning to develop a curriculum that reflects the environment and community in which they live.

It offers pupils a suitable range of learning experiences that encourage pupils to explore and learn. A strength of the school is the way leaders, staff and pupils work together to promote the school's Welsh identity and the language of Wales. As a result, many pupils enjoy improving their Welsh language skills and are confident when speaking Welsh around the school.

Leaders, alongside the governing body, keep the work of the school under review and there are suitable arrangements for monitoring the quality of school improvements. On a few occasions monitoring activity does not always identify areas that need improving, for instance on the way teachers support pupils to improve their work or how their planning might improve pupils' literacy and numeracy skills. Recommendations R1 Strengthen self-evaluation processes to focus more specifically on the impact of teaching and learning R2 Ensure that teachers use assessment and feedback approaches effectively to support pupil progress R3 Plan purposeful opportunities for older pupils to develop their literacy and numeracy skills across the curriculum What happens next The school will draw up an action plan to address the recommendations from the inspection.
