Pembrokeshire pupils failed by poor reading and numeracy teaching

According to BBC, pupils in a county which was in special measures for two years are still being failed by poor reading and numeracy teaching, inspectors have said.

Estyn said teaching fell short in about half of Pembrokeshire’s 52 primary schools and in the three of its six secondary schools it has inspected since 2017.

Pembrokeshire was taken out of special measures two years later but Estyn has found pupils’ standards were “too variable”.

The inspectors praised “strong” achievements by pupils studying Welsh as a first language, but said they were concerned by progress among Welsh second language students in half the primaries and all secondary schools.
