Argus journalists ... I don't think that any school where teaching is adequate is cause for celebration.
However in an authority like CCBC where mediocrity is celebrated then a set of different standards apply.

Pontllanfraith has not in the last 6 years had a 'super head'. It has merely had headteachers who have come and gone. The recent inspection success is down to the hard work and commitment of ALL the staff who have remained loyal to the school and who have given their best for their pupils. I agree that 'adequate is not a cause for celebration' but the school was judged as 'good' not adequate. It was actually the local education authority education department that was judged as adequate. So bearing that in mind, it is all the more reason for the staff at Pontllanfraith to be commended. I understand a new Headteacher has been appointed, let us hope that the school under his leadership will continue to progress.
