DEDICATED and caring staff at Logie Primary School have received praise from education inspectors.
Following a visit earlier this year, inspectors have highlighted multiple strengths within the school, including “innovative and purposeful leadership of the headteacher”, “strength of partnership working which impacts positively on children’s learning experiences” and “imaginative use of the environments for learning indoors and outside”.
Education Scotland also commented on “happy, articulate children who are eager to learn and who enjoy their leadership roles in the school”.
Two areas of improvement have been identified, including continuing to raise attainment in literacy and numeracy, and the school’s approaches to assessing and tracking children’s progress, including their wider, personal achievements.
Overall the school was evaluated as “good” and “very good” for quality indicators including leadership of change; learning, teaching and assessment; raising attainment and achievement; and ensuring wellbeing, equality and inclusion.
Chair of Moray Council’s Children and Young People’s Services Committee, Cllr Sonya Warren, congratulated the school staff for their hard work.
“I’m thrilled to read such a positive report for Logie Primary School. With education inspectors noting the happiness of the pupils, the dedication of the staff and the quality of leadership, it proves the school is doing everything it can to provide the best learning experiences for its young people, and that staff and pupils are benefitting from this approach.
“We’ll continue to work with the school community and take the advice from Education Scotland to monitor pupils’ achievements and strive to raise attainment.”
