At Abertillery Learning Community, after a period of staffing instability, the headteacher and senior leadership team provide strong leadership that is committed to securing high quality teaching and provision for pupils of all ages. They strengthened arrangements for self-evaluation and improvement planning across the school. As a result of more robust monitoring and appropriate professional learning, teaching across the school has improved and had a positive impact on pupils’ progress, behaviour and attitudes to learning. Staff have a good understanding of what is expected of them and what they can expect from leaders. This has helped to improve the morale of staff, create a sense of teamwork across the school and raise expectations around what pupils can achieve. Leaders also strengthened their arrangements for consulting with pupils on many aspects of the school’s work, which led to notable changes to the school’s provision and general improvement.
