Each year in June, the Head Teacher collates views and evidence from all stakeholders to collate and evaluation of the school against HIGIOS 4 indicators (Government publication, How Good is our School?). We gather this information in a variety of ways e.g. questionnaires, focus groups.
We use our evaluations to form a plan for the following year with reference to school, council and national priorities. Our staff work collegiately on the plan and are committed to improving the learning experiences for children in Bower. Last year we improved attainment in literacy and numeracy through the use of emerging literacy assessments and highland numeracy assessments to track pupil progress and plan interventions as well as the implementation of accelerated reading in the P5-7 class to improve attainment in reading.
