A primary school in Llandrindod Wells is the most improved in Powys, having jumped up two places from red to yellow in the latest Welsh Government colour codes.

Llandrindod Wells Cefnllys Primary School was the only school in the county to have made such an improvement from 2017 to 2018.

Acting headteacher at the school, Karen Jenkins, said: "I am absolutely delighted with the fantastic progress that has been made at the school.

"I would like to thank the staff, children, parents and governors for their invaluable contribution to our continued success."

The National School Categorisation System, introduced in 2014, places schools across Wales into one of four colour-coded support categories to demonstate the level of support they need: green, yellow, amber and red.

The annual categorisation ratings take into consideration how effectively schools are led and managed, the quality of learning and teaching, and the level of support the schools need to do better.

Previously, when Llandrindod Wells Primary School was in the red category, it required up to 25 days of support. Now it is in the yellow category, only 10 days of support are needed.

These new colour codes, published on Thursday, January 31, put Cefnllys on the same level as Trefonnen: the other primary school in Llandrindod Wells, which has kept its yellow ranking.
