STAFF and pupils at a Bishopbriggs secondary school are celebrating after inspectors delivered a glowing “report card” following a recent visit.

The Education Scotland team highlighted the “very strong attainment and achievement” of young people at Turnbull High and said the headteacher’s “strong and caring leadership”, supported by senior management, is highly valued across the school community.

The report added: “Together they ensure a well-established culture of all staff monitoring and evaluating their work.

“Teachers have very strong approaches to checking how well learners are progressing and attaining. As a result, young people can confidently discuss their strengths and next steps in learning.”

Inspectors also noted: “Staff use targeted approaches to supporting specific young people who require additional support. Care-experienced young people are very well supported to achieve and attain.

“The school’s strong, faith-based ethos and Catholic identity ensure young people feel valued and included across the school community.”

Two areas for improvement were identified and discussed with the headteacher and a representative from East Dunbartonshire Council.

These included a requirement for staff to continue to "streamline support plans to ensure that the range of needs of all young people are met consistently well across the school” and "act on the views of young people to inform improvement, particularly in what and how they learn.”

Turnbull High School headteacher Eileen Kennedy said: " We are delighted to receive this very positive report which celebrates the significant and many strengths of our school. The detailed narrative recognises the commitment and hard work of the entire school community and highlights the ways in which our values underpin this."

Councillor Lynda Williamson, convener of East Dunbartonshire Council's education committee said: "Huge congratulations to the whole school community of Turnbull High on this wonderful inspection report. The inspectors' findings and their comments are a testament to the hard work and commitment of the headteacher, her staff, pupils and their families.

“It is a fabulous school where the young people are supported on their journey to achieve the best that they can.”
