A Johnstone primary has received a glowing report card from Education Scotland inspectors.

The senior leadership team of St Margaret's Primary School and Early Learning and Childcare Class was praised for working with staff to create "a warm, welcoming and nurturing" learning environment.

Education Scotland said children were "enthusiastic and proud" of their school and nursery as a result of this approach.

Another key strength highlighted was all staff having "a clear focus on improving the wellbeing needs" of children, which has created the conditions where youngsters engage well in their learning.

Inspectors also praised how children were able to enjoy learning in "a range of planned contexts" that are matched to their needs, such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

However, Education Scotland did highlight some areas for improvement at the school, in Quarrelton Road, which have been discussed with the headteacher and Renfrewshire Council.

Senior leaders and staff have been told to continue improving approaches to planning, tracking and monitoring children’s work, which will help children build on their learning as they move through the school.

In addition, practitioners have been asked to continue developing approaches to learning, teaching and assessment, including through play at nursery to P3, to ensure appropriate challenge in learning for all children.

A spokesperson for Education Scotland said: "We are confident that the school has the capacity to continue to improve and so we will make no more visits in connection with this inspection.

"Renfrewshire Council will inform parents/carers about the school’s progress as part of its arrangements for reporting on the quality of its schools."
