Young people with autism and learning disabilities at an Aberdeen school experience warm interactions with staff, inspectors said.
Monitors from the Care Inspectorate watchdog visited Linn Moor Residential School in Peterculter on March 11 and have now published their report.
Inspectors rated the service “very good” for care, support and staffing – the second best of six possible ratings.
“The school provides a nurturing environment in which young people experience warm interactions with people who are caring for them,” said the report.
It added: “We found good evidence to show young people were making progress and achieving positive outcomes in relation to their health, education, communication and self-care skills.
“Good attention was paid to keeping medical appointments and following through with courses of treatment.”
