Key strengths of the school

  • Confident, articulate children who are motivated to learn.
  • A strong sense of community, positive relationships and a caring ethos.
  • Children’s skills developed through enterprise and global citizenship work.
  • Approaches to supporting children with additional needs.
  • The teamwork of staff to improve outdoor learning in the school and nursery classes.
  • Children’s engagement in physical activity to improve their health and wellbeing.

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

  • Further develop approaches to planning for progression from nursery to P7 and build on prior learning at transition stages.
  • Continue to strengthen arrangements to assess, track and monitor children’s progress across all curriculum areas.
  • Strengthen approaches to selfevaluation in the nursery to further develop the curriculum and ensure appropriate levels of challenge for all children.

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 evaluative visits in connection with this inspection. During the inspection, we identified the Fairlogie project as innovative practice which we would like to explore further in order to share the practice with others. As a result we will work with the school and Angus Council to record the innovative practice and it share more widely.


Under the Public Services Reform (Scotland) Act 2010, HM Inspectors have a duty of cooperation in our scrutiny functions. In the inspection of early education and childcare, we cooperate with the Care Inspectorate. Where requirements are made as a result of findings of the inspection, these refer to relevant Care Inspectorate legislation.

  • There was one requirement as a result of this inspection visit.
