This report is salutary reading and shows that we need to improve the education service for the children and young people in Monmouthshire.
Whilst our schools appear to do very well in national league tables, it is clear that we could be achieving even more, and standards should be higher.
We’ve already started to tackle the issues raised in the inspection and we have dealt with a number of the concerns that Estyn raise.
We have appointed a new Director to lead the education service who starts work with us soon, and in the meantime we have engaged a strong interim management team to lead the service and to tackle issues identified.
Whilst we do not underestimate the challenges ahead, we are confident that our education service will continue to improve.
