Key strengths of the school

  • Confident children, and their use of ICT and real life contexts for learning.
  • The learning experiences enhanced by the new school building and grounds.
  • The highly motivated staff team’s use of career long professional learning to improve outcomes for children.
  • Involvement of children, parents and the community in the work of the school.
  • Outstanding leadership of the headteacher and her promotion of creativity and innovation.

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

  • Continue, as planned, to improve assessment within a progressive curriculum enabling children to know their strengths and next steps across all 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 evaluative visits in connection with this inspection. During the inspection, we identified aspects of innovative practice which we would like to explore further. We shall work with the school and South Lanarkshire Council to record the innovative practice and share it more widely.
