A Caerphilly county borough Primary School has become one of only three schools in Wales to be awarded with the IIP Investors in People Silver Award.
Tir-Y-Berth Primary School has held Investors in People since 2003, and was recently recognised for their skills in people management with the Silver award, an achievement matched by only two other schools in all of Wales.
This recognition places the school as one of the leading organisations of best people management practice in the UK.
Over two days an assessor from Investors in People met with 26 members of staff for rigorous interviews, before the assessor awarded the school with Silver Status for the standards that all the team strive to work to every day.
Mrs Sian Clemens, Head Teacher of Tir-Y-Berth Primary School, proudly accepted the award on behalf of all the staff at the school. She said, "I am very proud to have achieved the Investors in People Silver Award, as it shows how well we work as a team. Since I joined the school in 2008, my aim has been to build a strong collaborative team, with the collective aim of providing the best education and opportunities for all children within a happy environment."
She added, "I'm lucky I have an excellent team, who work well together and put the children's interests at the forefront of everything they do. This award highlights the strengths of having a core purpose and valuing each other and the contributions that everyone makes to achieve our aims."
Cllr Rhiannon Passmore, Cabinet Member for Education and Lifelong Learning for Caerphilly County Borough Council added, "The achievements made by the staff at Tir-Y-Berth Primary demonstrate the very high commitment of our staff to best management practices, which filter through to teaching practice, allowing our children the best possible education and opportunities for their future."
