An Aberdeen primary and nursery school, which was saved from closure, has been ordered to improve after a critical report from a watchdog.
Bramble Brae School, in Aberdeen’s Cummings Park Drive, was described by Education Scotland’s Care Inspectorate as “weak” on raising attainment at primary level and securing children’s progress during their time at the nursery. It was also rated “weak” on leadership of change at nursery level.
Several recommendations have been made, including developing a “medication policy” with parents for children who need it, and creating clear staff training plans, based on personal reviews.
It has also been recommended that staff log accidents and incidents with parents for auditing, training plans are developed for staff and robust systems are installed to monitor quality and the work of each staff member.
The school did receive a “good” rating for ensuring wellbeing, equality and inclusion at primary level, and was praised for being a “warm and caring” environment.
