Councillor Michael McBride, North Lanarkshire Council’s education convener, said: “I know that the entire school community at Lawmuir will be delighted with this positive inspection report, which reflects everyone’s commitment to providing children with a supporting and nurturing environment to learn.”

Inspectors outlined three areas for improvement, which were identified and discussed with the headteacher and a representative from North Lanarkshire Council.

The report said: “The leadership team now need to develop and embed a more strategic approach to improving outcomes for children across the school. To support this, the headteacher should review the roles, responsibilities and remits of promoted staff.”

It also noted the school should “build on existing effective practice, and plan learning across the school that provides appropriate support and challenge for all learners” and “ensure all children make the best possible progress in their learning” alongside continuing to “raise attainment in reading, writing, numeracy and mathematics.”
