The inspection report, released following a recent inspection by Estyn, emphasised the school's commitment to inclusivity and the well-being of its students.

According to the report, Ysgol Rhiw Bechan was described as "a happy and caring school" where the headteacher, leads "with enthusiasm and compassion." The report further noted the strong relationships between staff, pupils, and families, fostering a sense of unity within the school community.

Inspectors praised the school's dedication to creating a supportive environment, with staff effectively nurturing the well-being of students. The report states:

"Staff have effective working relationship with pupils which nurtures their well-being successfully. This fosters a supportive environment which contributes well to pupils’ enjoyment of learning. Pupils are friendly, polite, and happy in school and contribute fully to school life. Teachers work diligently to ensure that topics are engaging and relevant to the pupils."

"The headteacher provides strong leadership. The school’s current priorities for improvement are appropriate and leaders work purposefully, alongside the governing body, to secure improvements for the school. Together, they understand most of the school’s strengths and areas for development."

However, the report also identified areas for improvement, noting that teachers occasionally over-direct learning and highlighting limited opportunities for students to develop and apply skills in the outdoor area.

The report recommended several areas for improvement, including sharpening self-evaluation processes, refining provisions to promote independent learning, and enhancing opportunities for outdoor skill development.

Ysgol Rhiw Bechan is a dual stream primary school in Tregynon with 169 pupils on roll as of January 2024.
