Key strengths of the school

  • The supportive ethos and family atmosphere.
  • Children’s learning experiences and opportunities for achievement.
  • The very high standard of children’s performance in music.
  • The significant role played by support staff and community volunteers in the school.
  • The school’s extensive links with its local community and parents which extend and enrich children’s learning.

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

  • Continue to develop how children take responsibility for setting and meeting personal goals and targets in their learning.
  • Continue to raise attainment by increasing the pace of children’s progress and developing their skills through their wider learning experiences.
  • Ensure that the headteacher and support for learning teacher work together in classrooms to provide advice and support to teachers and continue to improve children’s learning.

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, Aberdeenshire Council will inform parents about the school’s progress.
