Estyn Inspections of Torfaen Local Authority Education Services

Following an inspection in 2011, Torfaen was judged by Estyn to require significant improvement. A further monitoring visit in 2013 resulted in the authority's services being placed in special measures. Over the course of 2014 and 2015, monitoring visits took place and in January 2016, the authority was judged to have made sufficient progress to be removed from special measures and from follow up action. The last visit from Estyn was therefore in November 2015.
