A north-east primary school has been praised after its latest inspection.
Crimond School was inspected by officials from Education Scotland in February and its leadership, learning, attainment raising and wellbeing were all rated as good.
The nursery received good ratings for leadership, children’s progress and wellbeing while the learning was deemed satisfactory.
Crimond Primary was praised for the “effective leadership” of its head teacher, the “well-mannered” pupils who are proud of their school, allied to the efforts of staff to create a “welcoming, family” philosophy and the role of parents in supporting the school and nursery.
Education Scotland said the school needed to improve in two areas.
It is continuing to share best practice across the school to provide high quality teaching and raising attainment in literacy and numeracy by making sure all pupils are appropriately challenged in their learning.
Inspector Lesley Johnstone said Crimond School has the “capacity” to improve and they watchdog body will make no more visits to the school in connection with their report.
