A tiny Speyside primary school has been praised by inspectors who gave it a hugely positive report card.
Glenlivet Primary, which has just 16 pupils, was ranked “very good” across all four categories including leadership, learning, teaching and assessment, raising attainment and ensuring wellbeing, equality and inclusion.
Education Scotland inspector Pamela Adamson praised the school’s headteacher as well as the “highly motivated and engaged” children.
She added: “There is a very strong sense of community, which is underpinned by shared values and high expectations.
“This provides a nurturing, inclusive environment where everyone strives together to achieve success for all.”
Sonya Warren, chairwoman of Moray Council’s children and young people’s committee, said: “I’m particularly pleased to see the partnership working is contributing to raising attainment and achievement.
“It is also giving the pupils a real sense of the community in the area – and the important part they play in it.”
