Inspection of Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu, Glasgow City Council

Key strengths of the school

  • Children’s and young people’s fluency and their use of Gaelic in a range of learning situations.
  • The positive ethos based on strong relationships, trust and mutual respect.
  • The support provided by all staff for meeting the needs of all children and young people.
  • The commitment of all staff and parents to developing and promoting the Gaelic language and bilingualism.

We discussed with staff and Glasgow City Council how they might continue to improve Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu. This is what we agreed with them.

  • Improve the leadership and pace of implementing Curriculum for Excellence.
  • Develop further self-evaluation to ensure greater consistency in learning and teaching and monitoring of children’s and young people’s progress.
  • Continue to develop a 3-18 Gaelic Medium school which maximises the use of Gaelic for children’s and young people’s learning.

What happens at the end of the inspection?

We are satisfied with the overall quality of provision. We are confident that, with continued support from Glasgow City Council, Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu’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, Glasgow City Council will inform parents about Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu’s progress.
