Key strengths of the school

  • Motivated and courteous children who demonstrate a pride in their school. 
  • Effective approaches to identifying and targeting support for children. 
  • The strong and effective teamwork of staff in providing positive learning experiences for children.
  • The commitment and readiness of the acting headteachers in leading the school.

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


  • Build on best practice to ensure that there is a whole-school approach to developing the curriculum.
  • Improve pace and challenge in learning to ensure attainment is raised for all children.
  • Develop a reliable system to minotor the work of the school, including tracking children's progress.


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 North Lanarkshire Council to build capacity for improvement, and will maintain contact to monitor progress. We will ask North Lanarkshire Council to provide a progress report within one year of publication of this letter. We will then decide if a further inspection of the school is required.

Editors' note

The full published letter and quality indicators (as applicable) are available on the school's report page on the Education Scotland website.
