Inspectors have praised Linlithgow Primary School and Nursery and say children are enthusiastic about learning.

The report from Her Majesty’s Inspectors found the children to be positive and the leadership to be effective.

Head teacher Charlette Robertson said: “We are very happy with our report and all parents, staff and pupils should be proud that inspectors highlighted so many positive aspects of both our school and nursery.

“Like any report there are recommendations for improvement in some areas and we will work to ensure that our school continues to maintain our high standards and improve further.”

It was also praised for enriching children’s experiences through a range of educational outings in the community, such as visits to churches and libraries, and residential outdoor trips.

They also develop confidence and leadership skills through taking part in schemes like Playground Pals and Junior Road Safety Officers, and being members of the Eco Committee.

Children in P6 and P7 are developing their social and communication skills well and make a very good contribution to their community through involvement with the Palace Guides Programme, run in conjunction with Historic Scotland at Linlithgow Palace.

Children in the nursery were found to be making good progress in their learning as the majority were beginning to form letters and attempting to write their name and other familiar words.
