Key strengths of the school

  • Polite, well behaved children who are keen, eager to learn and proud of their school.
  • Strong, effective support for children with English as an additional language.
  • Strong links with a range of partners focused clearly on improving children’s learning.
  • The very effective headteacher who has fostered strong productive relationships with the school community.

We discussed with staff and Dundee City Council how they might continue to improve the school. This is what we agreed with them.

  • Continue to improve the curriculum in line with national guidance.
  • Continue to develop approaches to ensure consistently high quality learning experiences for children.
  • Increase the pace of learning and the level of challenge for all learners.

What happens at the end of the inspection?

We are satisfied with the overall quality of provision. We are confident that the school’s self evaluation processes are leading to improvements. As a result, we will make no further visits in connection with this inspection. As part of its arrangements for reporting to parents on the quality of education, Dundee City Council will inform parents about the school’s progress.
