Primary school is top of the class
The headteacher of a Johnstone primary school that scored top marks at a recent inspection has thanked the staff for all their hard work.
Fordbank Primary School was lauded for its quality of leadership and high levels of respect pupils show for each other by Education Scotland.
Carol McCormick, headteacher of Fordbank Primary School, is delighted with the inspection results.
She said: “Everyone in the school is passionate about the learning and teaching experience in Fordbank Primary School.
“It’s fantastic to have a positive report that reflects on the support we give to all pupils to achieve their potential within an inclusive and nurturing environment.
“That ethos is at the heart of what we do at Fordbank and all staff share a commitment to continuous improvement with a clear focus on raising attainment for all and closing the poverty-related attainment gap.”
The school received three good and one very good grades on the four quality indicators assessed – leadership of change; learning, teaching and assessment; raising attainment and achievement; and ensuring wellbeing, equality and inclusion.
Renfrewshire Council’s Education and Children’s S e r v i c e s C o nv e n e r, Councillor Jim Paterson, said: “The result for Fordbank Primary School shows that teachers, parents and staff are all working together for the benefit of the pupils.”
