A POSSILPARK school is celebrating following a positive "report card" from inspectors.

The Education Scotland team said key strengths of St Cuthbert’s Primary included children who are “welcoming, friendly and polite...and proud of their school, keen to learn and engage well with the wide range of relevant learning activities provided.”

The inspectors also said the school had a “a strong sense of community based on Gospel values” which contributes to the “warm, positive and nurturing relationships between children and staff across the school."

As a result, children learn in a “happy and caring environment.”

The report also noted: “Senior leaders .. work well with staff to drive forward improvements in children’s attainment and achievement. Collectively, all staff have a very strong understanding of their community which helps them to meet children’s needs well.”

Inspectors found that “improvements in the consistency of high-quality learning and teaching and digital skills across the school” had resulted in “children … beginning to develop skills in leading their own learning.”

The report advised staff should continue to develop approaches to planning, tracking and monitoring children’s progress and achievement across the school, and continue to ensure that all children are appropriately challenged as they learn.

Headteacher Susan Quinn said: “It is wonderful to see the hard work and commitment of staff and pupils in the school recognised by the inspection team.

“We are particularly pleased to see the recognition that our children are welcoming, friendly and polite, and proud of their school. I am so glad they experienced exactly what I did on my return to the school in August 2023.

“The staff in St Cuthbert’s do all they can to support the pupils to achieve their best and work exceptionally hard to address all areas of need in order that no pupil misses out. It is great to see that the inspectors recognised this.

“As a school community we are delighted with the report and will use the next steps within it to continue to improve our support for the families of St Cuthbert’s.”

Councillor Christina Cannon, Glasgow City Council’s education convenor, said: “This is a good report card for the school, and I am really pleased for the staff, children and their families.

“Inspectors have highlighted a number of good practices at the school and praised learning and teaching. I am delighted that the report outlines the brilliant work the school is doing in respect of children’s rights and that children are actively encouraged to be part of the decisions taken by teachers and staff.

“Congratulations to the school community.”
