Key strengths of the school

  • The caring and supportive ethos created by the headteacher and school staff which provides children with a happy learning environment.
  • Very well-behaved children who are keen to learn and enjoy school.
  • The promotion of pupil voice which informs school improvements.

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

  • Continue to develop the curriculum to make it more relevant and challenging for children.
  • Continue to develop approaches to self-evaluation, including assessing and tracking children’s learning, to further improve children’s achievement.

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