Denbighshire residents asked their views on council support for schools and youth services

Residents in Denbighshire are being asked to share their views on the education services provided by the council as part of an inspection by Estyn. The education and training inspectorate has launched a survey to ask parents, carers, learners and anyone working or involved in education to help inspectors judge how effective the council is at ensuring young people receive the education to which they are entitled.

Meilyr Rowlands, Chief Inspector, says, “Local views from those involved with schools and youth services are vital to help give a picture of how well the council is performing. Inspectors will be considering how well the education services help pupils to achieve, support those who are vulnerable or have particular needs and provide youth support services for those aged 11-25.”

The survey is part of a pilot of a new inspection framework for local government education services in Wales and it will be used to inform the inspection of Denbighshire which begins in February.

The survey is open until 23 January.
