Bishopton Primary has received a glowing report card from Education Scotland inspectors.

The senior leadership team was praised for ensuring all staff "feel trusted to lead changes" in improving and enhancing learning experiences for children.

Education Scotland said a range of nurturing approaches were used in the school to "maintain a very positive and supportive environment."

Inspectors found that children responded well to the encouragement and support they received and are able to progress well as a result.

Pupils were described as "confident, articulate, and happy" in classes, as well as showing respect to one another.

It was also highlighted that the children were proud of their school and welcoming opportunities to take leadership roles.

Another key strength identified was students across the school having high levels of attainment in literacy and numeracy.

Inspectors also praised how pupils had "meaningful opportunities" to apply their learning and skills in a variety of situations and through a wide range of activities beyond the school day.

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

Senior leaders and staff have been told to continue to develop whole school approaches to assessing children's progress and attainment, involving parents in the review of how and when information is shared. 

To support this improvement, staff have been asked to further develop the work they currently do with other schools to continue to ensure that national standards are applied and maintained.

In addition, staff have been told to build on the highly effective practice that already exists to develop greater consistency in delivering high-quality learning and teaching across the school.

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."
