Key strengths of the school

  • Very polite, respectful and motivated children who engage very well in their learning.
  • Children’s achievements in a wide range of activities.
  • Staff teamwork and commitment to continuous improvement in learning and teaching.
  • The headteacher’s leadership of improvements to the quality of learning and teaching.

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

  • Continue to develop approaches to self evaluation and planning for improvement to ensure that children’s learning continues to improve.
  • Continue to update procedures for supporting children with additional support needs to ensure that the children continue to make appropriate progress.

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 aspects of 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 West Dunbartonshire Council in order to record and share more widely the innovative practice.
