Inspectors have given a Moray school and nursery a positive report with staff praised for their ability to work as a team.
Cullen Primary School and nursery was visited by education inspectors in October 2018 and this week parents received notifications of their findings.
They rated the school and nursery as “very good” and “good” across a number of areas including the “high quality” of learning and teaching.
The children were also given a glowing report for their care and support of each other and their ability to “interact very positively and respectfully during activities”. The report added: “Children are polite and highly motivated to learn.”
However, some areas were found to be in need of improvements.
This included developing systems to track pupils progress, and to ensure children had the opportunity to participate in all aspects of school life.
Chair of Moray Council’s Children and Young People’s Services Committee, councillor Sonya Warren, said the acting head teacher and staff at Cullen Primary School and Nursery had achieved a great deal.
She said: “To receive such a positive report from Education Scotland and the Care Inspectorate is testament to the team work of the school and nursery staff, which I’m delighted was also praised by inspectors.
“Their hard work every day does not go unrecognised and is benefiting the pupils in the nursery and the school itself.”
