 School Improvement Plan

This year we have a particular focus on raising attainment for all our learners and this theme continues this term. Teachers will use collegiate hours (non contact time and Friday afternoons) to look particularly at how they share learning intentions, success criteria and improve the quality of feedback to learners. Staff are also working to develop improved progressive programmes for Spelling, Numeracy and Mathematics.

Last term we asked for feedback through questionnaires on Spelling and Numeracy/Literacy. We were delighted with the quality and amount of feedback we received. This information has been very informative and will support us in creating our new programmes. The collated results from the questionnaires can be seen on the website following the link






We would like to share with you a leaflet for all parents/carers which has been produced by the Scotland’s National Centre for Languages specifically to explain the new 1+2 approach. Please follow the link for the leaflet and additional information regarding the new languages approach.

Dear Parents/Carers


Thank you for taking the time before the Easter break to complete the questionnaire about strengths and next steps of the school. We have now analysed your responses and will use these to continue to improve our provision.  


The following points were listed by many parents as strengths of the school:

    • Positive ethos

    • Recongnising achievement  

    • Strong sense of community 

    • Good range of extra curricular activities 

    • Brilliant parent council 

    • Positive and pro-active atmosphere

    • Very informative newsletters 

    • Curriculum plans are very ‘parent friendly’ to understand

    • Inviting parents in for assemblies and open afternoons is great as it’s a lovely opportunity to see classrooms and to be included in what pupils have been learning

    • Trips are relevant to topics

    • Open evenings for P1 parents

    • My child feels like a valued member of school
    • My child has good relationships with support staff as well as teacher
    • Well organised homework – know exactly what to do
    • Encourage school uniform
    • Good communication with partners/agencies
    • Keep parents well informed
    • Good school
    • Helpful, caring staff
    • Sense of belonging/responsibility with children
    • Interesting topics
    • Link with other agencies/providers
    • Teaching current topics
    • School assemblies 
    • Teaching and looking after our children
    • Staff communication
    • Good response and helpful answers
    • Approachable, helpful, informative

  Some parents felt that the following points would further develop the school:  
    • More after school clubs, especially in light of the asymmetric week starting in August

    • Increased opportunities to view pupil work


    • More non fundraising activities to support local community


    • Opportunities for pupils to engage in public speaking


    • Greater time to prepare for World Book Day and dressing up events 


We will take on these points when planning for the future.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire.
