Windsor Clive a ‘good' school with an ‘inclusive and nurturing community'

A report published by education watchdog Estyn has found Windsor Clive Primary School in Ely to be ‘good' across all five areas it inspected. 

In their report the Estyn inspectors said that, under Headteacher, Mrs Vicky Meadows, "leaders and staff at Windsor Clive Primary provide pupils with a very supportive and inclusive environment." 

The report goes on to say that "pupils are proud of their school and greet adults and other pupils confidently and respectfully. There are good working relationships between pupils and staff, based on mutual respect. Pupils behave well and demonstrate kindness and respect for each other." 

It also found that "teachers have high expectations for pupils' behaviour and they manage lessons calmly and effectively." 

When it comes to care, support and guidance, the school is seen as an "inclusive and nurturing community" and "pupils receive outstanding emotional support." 

Estyn also recognised the role of the school's family engagement officer, noting that they work with parents "to help them to support their child" and that they run "purposeful workshops for parents." 

Deputy Leader of Cardiff council and Cabinet Member for Education, Employment and Skills said: "I am delighted for Mrs Meadows, all the staff and the pupils at Windsor Clive Primary School. They have been working incredibly hard, and the good Estyn report is very much deserved. I am really looking forward to visiting the school after the summer holidays to add my congratulations in person." 

The five areas Estyn inspects are: standards; wellbeing and attitudes to learning; teaching and learning experiences; care, support and guidance; and leadership and management. Inspectors evaluate effectiveness using a four-point ‘judgement scale': excellent; good; adequate and needs improvement; or unsatisfactory and needs urgent improvement.
