Key strengths of the school

  • Happy, settled children who have formed close bonds with staff and love coming to nursery.
  • The friendly, nurturing ethos, underpinned by children’s rights.
  • Achievement and attainment in a wide range of areas, including literacy and numeracy.
  • The exceptional skills of staff in responding to children’s emotional needs and individual circumstances and in helping to keep children safe.
  • The impact of family learning and partnerships with other agencies, resulting in improved outcomes for children.

We discussed with staff and the education authority how they might continue to improve the pre-school centre. This is what we agreed with them.

  • Continue to develop children’s individual plans to make the story of their learning and progress clearer.
  • Review and further develop the curriculum in line with Curriculum for Excellence.
  • Build on arrangements for self-evaluation and proceed with plans to include children and parents more fully in the development of the service.

What happens at the end of the inspection?

We are satisfied with the overall quality of provision. We are confident that the pre-school centre’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 the arrangements for reporting to parents on the quality of the pre-school centre, the local authority will inform parents about the pre-school centre’s progress.
