Inspectors believe Bo’ness Academy ‘could do better’ and needs additional support and time to make the necessary improvements.

Education Scotland carried out an inspection at the end of October and have already discussed with the staff and Falkirk Council how the academy can be improved.

The report states how the school needs to continue to raise the attainment of all young people and secure stronger results in national qualifications.

It also outlines that the school must review and improve their curriculum to better meet the needs of all young people and help improve their progress.

The inspection did find some key strengths including the courteous young people who attend Bo’ness Academy and the strong sense of community across the school with students understanding their role at a local, national and global level.

It also concluded the quality of provision for students requiring additional support was a highlight of the investigation.

An area lead officer from Education Scotland will now work with Falkirk Council to build a space fro improvement and will remain in contact with the school to ensure it improves.

A further inspection will take place next year.
