RED Alert
You may have read that Griffithstown Primary is categorised as 'Red' - (a school in need of greatest improvement).  This rating links explicitly to the Estyn Inspection Report - and you will already know that we are in 'Significant Improvement'.  I can assure you, and I hope you can see that we are making great strides and this is not an accurate reflection of where we are now.  Thank you for your continued support, the support of the governors and a massive thank you to the staff and children, who make a difference on a day-to-day basis.
