STAFF at a Glasgow school have been praised for being "caring and kind to children" following a recent inspection. 

Bun-sgoil Ghaidhlig Ghleann Dial (Glendale Gaelic Primary School), in Pollokshields, impressed the Education Scotland team in a number of key areas. 

The report said: "The headteacher and staff team are caring and kind to children.

"They place a high value on increasing the number of speakers of Gaelic in Glasgow."

It added children "enjoy talking about their successes in classes, clubs and events" and they have been successful "in opportunities that are organised nationally and locally to promote immersion". 

Education Scotland also praised staff for putting in place a range of one-to-one and small-group additional support to close gaps in children's fluency in Gaelic, with a note this is particularly valuable to older pupils who were not immersed in Gaelic during the pandemic.

Three areas for improvement were identified and discussed with the head teacher and a representative from Glasgow City Council, including staff seeking "ways of involving partners in children's learning to close further gaps in fluency because of the pandemic," and that staff should build on the most effective practices in total immersion.
