A north-east primary school has been given a glowing report by inspectors.
Skene Primary School, near Westhill, was recently visited by an inspection team from Education Scotland.
A report has now been published and parents informed of the results of the visit.
The school’s pupils were praised for being confident, motivated and well-behaved.
Inspectors were also impressed by the “high quality learning experiences” offered in the classroom.
And the head teacher and staff were highlighted for continuing to develop education at the school, as well as the positive relationship with parents and the local community.
The inspection team also identified areas where the school could continue to progress, by developing the curriculum and ensuring recent school improvements become fully implemented over time.
The report added: “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, Aberdeenshire Council will inform parents about the school’s progress.”
