Following a pre-lockdown visit in March, Education Scotland rated the school as very good across learning, teaching and assessment; raising attainment and achievement; ensuring wellbeing, equality and inclusion; and leadership of change.
Inspectors praised the head teacher’s leadership and his “enthusiasm to ensure all children achieve”. They said Alves Primary children make “valuable contributions” to their local area, are “welcoming and responsible, and show care and compassion for each other”. The high-quality learning experiences provided within the school was also highlighted as a strength.
Chair of Moray Council’s Children and Young People’s Services Committee, Cllr Sonya Warren, welcomed the report.
“Well done to Mr McLeman and his dedicated team at the school for providing such enriching experiences for our young people. It’s heartening to see their efforts rewarded by Education Scotland. I have no doubt the young people will continue to thrive in their education with the support of their families, the school staff and wider school community.”
