Children at a community primary school played host to their MP and Assembly Member last week.
Susan Elan Jones and Ken Skates visited Ysgol Acrefair on Friday (September 23) and met Rebecca Turner, who became headteacher 12 months ago.
The Clwyd South politicians were full of praise for the school and staff.
Ms Jones said: “It was a very enjoyable visit, and I would like to thank Mrs Turner and her team – and especially the children – for such a lovely warm welcome. It’s clear that the relationships between staff and pupils are very positive, which contributes hugely to the children’s high levels of enthusiasm to listen and learn.”
Mr Skates said: “Ysgol Acrefair’s last Estyn report rated both the school’s performance and prospects for improvement as ‘good’, and while that was a few years ago it is obvious that the many positives highlighted then still apply now. The children are happy and well-behaved, and the school has a wonderful, friendly atmosphere.”
Mrs Turner added: “We were delighted to welcome Ken Skates and Susan Elan Jones to discuss our exciting plans to provide a greater range of support and activities for parents and children and the wider community of Acrefair.”
