Staff at a north-east school have been praised by inspectors in a new report.
Logie Durno primary school was visited by Education Scotland inspectors earlier this year, who were left impressed with a number of strengths.
Pupils’ attainment in literacy and numeracy was highlighted, as was the “effective start” of head teacher Elizabeth McMahon, who took over in April this year.
The children were also applauded, with the report calling them “articulate, polite and proud of their school.”
Inspectors recognised the school’s good links with parents and the local community, the improved planning of teachers, and the range of learning experiences offered to pupils.
Suggested areas for improvement were building on children’s achievements to develop their skills for learning, life and work, and giving pupils more of a say in their learning.
The visit to the school was the first by inspectors since 2005.
In light of their visit, inspectors said they were confident of the school’s capacity to improve and will make no more visits in connection with this inspection.
Aberdeenshire Council will inform parents and carers about the school’s progress as part of its arrangements for reporting on the quality of its educational amenities.
