ST Joseph’s Primary School in Linlithgow has gained top marks in a recent HMIE inspection.
Pupils and staff were praised by education chiefs in a glowing report from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education (HMIE). Key strengths highlighted in the report included recognition for the “motivated, well behaved and confident children who enjoy their learning”.
Inspectors paid tribute to the team work and commitment of staff in improving the school and creating a positive and caring ethos, and headteacher Margaret Johns was praised for her strong leadership and direction in improving the life and work of the school.
The headteacher said: “We are thrilled with the report and are particularly pleased that the effective partnership working between staff and parents has been recognised. Everyone associated with St Joseph’s works hard to ensure that pupils receive a first class education and I’d like to thank parents, staff and, of course, the pupils for their hard work and commitment.”
Andrew Miller, executive councillor for education, added: “I’d like to congratulate the parents, pupils and staff at St Joseph’s after receiving such a positive report.’’
