    Inspection Report 2018

    27/3/20180 Comments

    At St Ninian's High School today,  staff and pupils celebrate the news that we have just achieved the best result of any Scottish school under Education Scotland's current inspection regime.  Inspectors visited the school in January 2018 and have just published their report which sees us commended across the board for the quality of education and support we provide to pupils.

    We are delighted to have received the following evaluations in each of the four Quality Indicators:

    Leadership of Change - Excellent

    Learning, Teaching and Assessment - Very Good

    Raising Attainment and Achievement - Very Good

    Ensuring Wellbeing, Equality and Inclusion - Very Good

    The Inspection Report can be viewed by clicking here.

    You can also view these documents via the Education Scotland website - click here to be linked straight to their website.

    Paul McLaughlin, Head Teacher, commented:  "We are delighted that the inspection team agreed with us that St Ninian's is an outstanding school.  The whole school community works hard every day to provide the best possible education for all young people in the school and it is fantastic to have this recognised in such glowing terms.  Thanks are due to all our parents, partners, staff and pupils who have contributed to such a positive outcome."


    HM Inspectors from Education Scotland will be visiting us to conduct an inspection during the week commencing 22nd January 2018.  You can find out more about inspection from the Inspection and Review Documentation pages of Education Scotland's website.


    As part of the inspection, Inspectors gather the views of stakeholders via an online survey which is available from https://forms.education.gov.scot/s/M5INQ/

    I would like to encourage you to complete the survey.  Inspectors will also be meeting with groups of parents during the inspection so to be part of that discussion you should complete the survey with additional links provided to indicate your interest in taking part.


    You should complete the survey by 12th January 2018 for one child or for each of your children in attendance.


    Kind regards


    Paul McLaughlin
