Well done to everyone at Ogilvie School Campus who have been praised following a recent inspection for their positive relationships between children and staff.

19 January

The Livingston school, which specializes in education for school for primary pupils with social, emotional and behavioural needs, received praise in a number of areas following a recent routine inspection by Education Scotland.

Inspectors highlighted a number of key strengths including a strong sense of community across the school led by the energetic, open leadership style of the acting headteacher, positive relationships between children and staff leading to children feeling safe and cared for, ably supported by advanced pupil support workers, teachers provide learning experiences which are engaging and motivating for children and strong partnerships with parents and other stakeholders.

Inspectors also recommended that the school continues to review approaches to promoting positive behaviour and raises attainment and achievement.

Headteacher Liz Speirs added: "We are very pleased to have received such a positive report. There are a number of areas to work on and I can assure parents and carers that every member of staff will continue to work towards improving the school for each and every one of our pupils. The relationships between our team, partners and our pupils are very special to us and we are delighted that Inspectors have highlighted this as a key strength for the school.

Executive councillor for education, David Dodds, who has also been an additional support needs teacher for over 40 years, said: "I'm delighted to see so many important strengths in this report for Ogilvie School Campus, and I'm particularly impressed with the school's success in involving parents, carers and families. Positive relationships between parents and teachers are necessary to establish a firm foundation, enabling the school to focus on learning and improving the school."

"I'd like to thank all members of staff, parents, partners and the wider school community for the part that they have played to help achieve a positive learning environment for our fantastic pupils."
