Udny Green Primary School has won widespread praise for receiving “very good” evaluations in all five performance indicators in an inspection by Education Scotland.
The report has outlined the school’s effort to involve staff, parents and children in decision-making.
It notes that children “are happy, settled, respectful and well behaved”.
The assessment also says that “there is a strong sense of togetherness and teamwork”.
North East Liberal Democrat MSP Alison McInnes said: “I am very glad to see that Udny Green Primary School’s approach to teaching has lead to a successful inspection by Education Scotland.
“It is important that small schools with limited number of staff are able to adapt to their situation and provide great education and community feel.”
The 30-pupil school, which was visited by inspectors from Education Scotland last November, was also praised by local councillor Paul Johnston who described the report as “superb”.
He said: “I was impressed that the inspectorate noted there was not a single criticism of the school from its parents or participants of the inspection - quite an achievement.
“I am sure the school will be building on its undoubted strengths in the future”
He also congratulated parents and teachers for a strong community partnership to create an ‘excellent’ environment for teaching and learning.
