Key strengths of the school

  • High-quality experiences for children in the nursery class.
  • Articulate and inquisitive children who are keen to be involved in the life of their school. 
  • Strong support shown by parents. 
  • The leadership of the headteacher in improving partnerships and identifying areas for school improvement.


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

  • Provide more opportunities for children to take responsibility for planning their own learning and improving the life of their school. 
  • Use Curriculum for Excellence to plan progressive learning experiences for children across all areas of the curriculum.
  • Develop more robust systems to evaluate the work of the nursery and school, including tracking children’s 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 visits in connection with this inspection. As part of its arrangements for reporting to parents on the quality of education, Angus Council will inform parents about the school’s progress.

Editors' note
