The positive learning experiences of the children in the nursery.
The polite and well-behaved children who are respectful and supportive of one another.
The readiness of staff to develop the work of the school, including the nursery.
We discussed with staff and the education authority how they might continue to improve the school and nursery class. This is what we agreed with them.
Improve leadership and approaches to self-evaluation.
Raise standards of attainment and ensure all children’s learning needs are met.
Develop a whole-school approach to partnership working and bring about improved consistency of learning experiences across all classes.
Improve communication and relationships between the headteacher and staff.
What happens at the end of the inspection?
As a result of our inspection findings we think that the school needs additional support and more time to make necessary improvements. Our Area Lead Officer will work with Stirling Council to build capacity for improvement, and will maintain contact to monitor progress. We will return to carry out a further inspection within one year of publication of this letter. We will then issue another letter to parents on the extent to which the school has improved.
Copies of the full published letter and the quality indicators are available on the school's report page on the Education Scotland website.
