Inspectors have praised acting head teacher Katie Finch and her team at Midmill Primary School Nursery for creating a ‘very positive ethos with children and families placed at the centre of their work.’

The nursery was rated “very good” for the quality of care and support and quality of environment during an inspection by the Care Inspectorate in October.

The report said: “Children were nurtured, valued and respected during their time at nursery. Effective transition arrangements for starting nursery and moving to Primary 1 contributed to children being happy, content and confident in the service.”



“Congratulations to acting Head Teacher Katie Finch, Early Years Senior Practitioner Dawn Morrison and Early Years Lead Practitioner Claire Singer on this great inspection,” Laurence Findlay, Aberdeenshire Council’s Director of Education and Children’s Services, commented.

“It was particularly satisfying to read some parents providing feedback in a questionnaire said their children are thriving at the nursery whilst others said staff know the children and provide them with support. It is also pleasing to see that the majority of recommendations from the previous inspection have been met and although there is a bit of work to do, this inspection must be a welcome boost for all involved.”
