Barassie gains “good” re­port

Ayrshire Post - - Troon -

The high qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion at Barassie Pri­mary and Nurs­ery has been of­fi­cially recog­nised. A pos­i­tive in­spec­tion re­port from Ed­u­ca­tion Scot­land found that the pri­mary was achiev­ing‘ good’ per­for­mance across the board with at­tain­ment lev­els and ef­fec­tive team work high­lighted as key strengths.

Inspector Morag Gu­nion came to her con­clu­sions af­ter dis­cus­sions with par­ents, children and new head Linda Clark­son and her staff. Children’s at­tain­ment in lit­er­acy and English was marked out for praise and good progress be­ing made in nu­mer­acy and math­e­mat­ics.

The re­port noted: “All staff work well to­gether. They are keen to take for­ward school im­prove­ments and se­cure pos­i­tive out­comes for children.”

The un­der­stand­ing that staff have of children as in­di­vid­u­als and the strong links which nurs­ery staff have with par­ents was noted.

The school must de­liver more con­sis­tent ap­proaches to learn­ing, teach­ing and as­sess­ment as well as bet­ter plan­ning. In­spec­tors also want track­ing in­for­ma­tion to clearly iden­tify trends and pat­terns and raise at­tain­ment of in­di­vid­u­als and groups of children more ef­fec­tively. Coun­cil­lor Wil­liam Grant said the re­sults were “en­cour­ag­ing.” He added: “This pos­i­tive re­port for Barassie high­lights good lev­els of at­tain­ment and strong lev­els of team­work, with the learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment help­ing to in­spire children to reach their max­i­mum.”
