An Aberdeen primary school needs additional support and more time to make improvements, according to inspectors.
Education Scotland carried out an inspection of Milltimber Primary and nursery, grading it weak on leadership and its approach to wellbeing.
In their findings, inspectors said there is a “need” for the head teacher and depute head to provide staff with “clearer strategic leadership”.
The school has also been directed to review its approach to children who need additional support.

However, the school was praised for the teamwork of its staff and for “polite and well-mannered” pupils who “engage well with learning”.
As a result of the inspection, Education Scotland said the school needs to make improvements with inspectors to carry out a follow-up inspection.
Councillor John Wheeler, convener of Aberdeen City Council’s education delivery committee, said: “We will work with the school to make sure improvements are met.”
