MOSSHEAD PRIMARY, SCHOOL GETS HMI REPORT, UNA WALKER, HT AND GORDON CURRIE'17/1/10'EM

A BEARSDEN school has received a glowing report following an HMIe inspection.

Mosshead Primary School was visited in November and inspectors highlighted a number of key areas of excellence including articulate, confident and happy children who show a love for learning, and ‘attainment and achievement through rich learning experiences’.

The report also praised the leadership of the headteacher and staff and the partnerships forges, particularly with parents.

Headteacher of the 352 pupil school Aileen Welsh said she was delighted with the HMIe report, adding: “As a school that is totally committed to Customer Service Excellence we ensure that self evaluation is at the heart of our school.

By doing this we have always believed that our school is a learning centre of excellence. However, it is wonderful to have had this externally validated by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate.

“In the report the first noted strength of the school is one of which we are all particularly proud - ‘Articulate, confident and happy children who show a love for learning’.”

This listed strength endorses our vision to provide the very best quality educational experience for every child in our care.

The school had excellence marks in three out of the five categories looked at with very good gradings in the other two.

Mosshead Primary has also been nominated by the Inspection team for its Journey to Excellence Website for the way it uses new technology.

This recent accolade comes on the back of the school winning the Primary UK wide Mathletics Four Nations Challenge last year.

Mrs Welsh added: “I would like to express my thanks to the pupils, parents and the staff for making Mosshead a recognised Learning Centre of Excellence.”
