During March, Brynteg Nursery were one of only twenty eight education providers recognised by Estyn, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for Education and Training in Wales for attaining excellence in education. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Staff at Brynteg Nursery received a certificate and congratulations from Meilyr Rowlands, Estyn’s Chief Inspector and Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education at an awards event held on 9 March in Cardiff. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Brynteg were invited to attend the First Annual Ceremony of Excellence hosted by Estyn to recognise schools, colleges and other settings that were judged to be excellent for one or both of the overall judgements for current performance and prospects for improvement in the academic year 2015-2016. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Meilyr Rowlands said: ‘Celebrating the excellence achieved by hard work and commitment within Welsh education is important. Recognising and sharing this excellence can help to inspire improvement in the classroom and the Estyn awards highlighting the success of Brynteg and other education providers that achieved excellence during 2015-2016 inspections.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Brynteg’s Chair of Governors, Dale Parry said: ‘It was inspiring to listen to the best practice from all over Wales and for Brynteg to be recognised nationally for achieving and maintaining excellence.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Torfaen’s Executive Member for Education, Cllr David Yeowell said: ‘The council congratulates the whole school on this fantastic achievement. It takes hard work, strong leadership, clear vision and relentless commitment to improvement from everyone connected to the school to achieve an ‘excellent’ overall judgement in an Estyn inspection. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Cabinet Secretary for Education Kirsty Williams congratulated Brynteg for setting the highest standards for early years education in Wales and said: ‘Something very special must be going on at Brynteg.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
