Our Standards and Quality Improvement Plan is a report on our journey of self-improvement during 2015 – 2016. Staff, pupils and parents considered key areas of ‘How Good is our School?’ published by Education Scotland – how-good-is-our-school-4th-edition

We evaluated our work, using the Quality Indicators relating to

  • School Leadership
  • Teacher Professionalism
  • Assessment of Children’s Progress
  • Learning, teaching and assessment
  • Raising attainment and achievement
  • Personalised support

We also include our key strategic priorities for the year ahead. As in all Aberdeen City schools, these are linked to the National Improvement Framework. national-improvement-framework
