Young people hailed in watchdog report
YOUNG people living at a city boarding school solved their own problems once cliques developed, inspectors said. Monitors from the Care Inspectorate watchdog visited Aberdeen City Music School’s halls of residence in Riverview Drive, Dyce, on February 15 and have now published their inspection report. Up to 40 young people study at the school and also attend Dyce Academy. “In the main, young people enjoyed each other’s company though they felt that the ‘family feel’ of boarding had changed this year, with more ‘cliques’ than previously,” said the report. It added: “During the inspection the young people organised a meeting to resolve this, agreed a positive way forward and displayed their agreement on a communal wall.
“This is certainly to their credit.” Inspectors gave the halls a ‘good’ rating – the third-best of six possible ratings.
