Celebrating the future of Gladestry Primary School
The Friends of Gladestry School (FROGS) is a group of parents, past pupils, supporters and members of the community, who have joined together to support the school.
In its report to Cabinet Powys County Council officers stated:
“The responses to the consultation, the latest data and particularly the high standard of education at the school lead to the conclusion that Gladestry Church in Wales School should not close”.
FROGS have welcomed recognition that Gladestry is a flourishing school in every way. It has a rising intake, is self-sufficient, is properly meeting the needs of its community and is providing high quality education from very good buildings.
Gladestry Primary School achieved exceptionally high standards in its Section 50 and ESTYN school inspection report, which concluded that “the school is a very strong learning community” and “provides excellent value for money”.
“An outstanding Primary school”
Powys County Council recognises Gladestry as an outstanding school. Not only does it provide a benchmark of best-practice for other schools throughout Powys, but many aspects of the work undertaken by pupils and staff are seen as exemplary practice within the Authority.
Gladestry School’s song ‘Every Child’
To celebrate our school we released a song ‘Every Child’ and you can see the video on You Tube now. ‘Every Child’ is a collaboration between the children, songwriter, Jim Eliot and parent, Rob Robinson. We are delighted that UNICEF like the song so much that they are showing it via their website too.
