Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

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.”
