Quality indicators help schools, education authorities and inspectors to judge what is
good and what needs to be improved in the work of the school. You can find these
quality indicators in the publication How good is our school?1. Quality indicators for the
nursery class can be found in the publication Child at the Centre2. Following the
inspection of each school, the Scottish Government gathers evaluations of three
important quality indicators to keep track of how well all Scottish schools are doing.
Here are the evaluations for Walker Road School and Nursery Class.

Transforming lives through learning
A sample of parents, children and young people, and all members of staff were invited to give their views of the school using a pre-inspection questionnaire. Their views informed the inspection process, including the nature of discussions in a number of
meetings. Strengths and issues identified were explored by the inspection team, and the findings are included in the inspection report. The following information gives the statistical detail from those that returned questionnaires.
