A north-east primary school has been praised for its ‘family atmosphere’ in a glowing report from inspectors.
Experts from Education Scotland visited Fetterangus School near Mintlaw and awarded ‘very good’ or ‘good’ marks in every category.
HM Inspector Jacqueline Sinclair said: “Fetterangus School is a happy school with a family atmosphere and a positive, nurturing climate.
“The children are friendly and confident, show an eagerness to learn, and talk about their achievements with pride.”
Now Scotland’s first minister has heaped praise on the teachers.
Fetterangus head teacher John Black received a letter from Alex Salmond, MSP for Aberdeenshire East, to congratulate him on the publication of the report.
Mr Salmond said: “This is an excellent report which all the staff at Fetterangus School should be very proud of.
“The school’s strong links with the community and emphasis on a wide range of subjects such as French and music obviously provide a very well-rounded education for pupils.”
