Inspectors see progress being made at Moray nursery

A Moray nursery has been found to have made significant improvements after an inspection raised concerns about leadership.

Education Scotland highlighted fears about Millbank in Buckie in December 2018, which followed a year of changes as it changed from being run by the primary school head teacher to having its own manager.

However, concerns were significant enough for inspectors to conclude that follow up visits were necessary.

Now the organisation has concluded that enough progress has been made to mean that no more related inspections are required.

A report written to parents praised the work done by the nursery manager in establishing a collective vision for staff, families and children.

Monthly meetings with workers to review what has happened has been found to have increased confidence and self-esteem alongside end of terms questionnaires.

Inspector Patricia Madden also saw the changes benefitting the children’s learning.

She wrote: “Children are proud of their learning journals and enjoy reflecting on, and talking about their learning and nursery experiences. The progress children make in their learning is more evident in electronic learning journals and tracking systems for literacy and numeracy.

“Practitioners should now continue with plans to track children’s progress in health and wellbeing.

“There is an increased focus on planning for literacy and numeracy. Opportunities that promote learning in these areas are evident across the playroom and outdoors. As a result, children are making better progress in their learning.”
