Primary school pupils and staff are celebrating after education chiefs heaped praise on them in an inspection report.

A recent Education Scotland inspection of Torrance Primary and its nursery resulted in an glowing report with inspectors highlighting the “innovative way the teachers have developed interdisciplinary themes which children also help to plan”.

The school gained three ‘very good’ ratings and three ‘excellents’, while the nursery garnered four ‘very goods’ and one ‘excellent’.

Head teacher Alison King said: “I’m very pleased with the report and would like to thank pupils, parents and my great team for all their hard work. It is always encouraging when inspectors recognise pupils’ achievements and I am happy too that the dedication of my colleagues has also been praised within the report.

“It is especially exciting that the inspectors are interested in finding out more about our innovative approaches to meeting the needs of all of our children. Our system to track children’s progress has also been included in a case study of best practice on Education Scotland’s website.”

Councillor Eric Gotts, the council’s convener of the education, visited the school earlier this month to meet Mrs King, her staff and pupils to congratulate them on the inspection report.
