A CARSE of Gowrie school has received a positive report after being visited by inspectors in February.
The HMIE inspection of St Madoes Primary School and Nursery Class singled out for praise: the high quality of pastoral care provided; the contribution of staff to the life and work of the school; productive links with parents and the wider community that were supporting learning throughout the school; and the innovative outdoor learning experiences.
HM Inspectors found a good quality curriculum operating at both the nursery and primary stages.
HM Inspectors put forward three main points for action:
Establishing consistently high expectations of pupils' achievements and attitudes to work.
Improving how information from assessment of pupils' attainment is used to help them progress.
Ensuring the school improvement plan contains a manageable number of priorities and that these are put in place consistently by all staff.
