Three areas for improvement were identified and discussed with the headteacher and a representative from Glasgow City Council.

“Staff should continue to raise attainment for all children in the school and nursery class,” said the inspectors.

“Staff should develop further the use of data to more clearly show how much and how well children progress overtime and … staff should continue to develop and implement approaches to learning through play within the school. This should include planned working with nursery practitioners to share effective practice.”

She added: “When we asked parents recently why they chose Haghill Park Primary for their children, one summed us up perfectly when they said, ‘it’s not just a school, it’s a family that includes everyone.’”

Councillor Christina Cannon, Glasgow City Council's convener for education and early years, said: “This is a lovely report and highlights the great relationship the school has with its families and community partners.

“The staff create many opportunities for their children to flourish in an amazing learning environment.
