A south Glasgow primary school which has had five headteachers in the last three years has suffered from a lack of leadership, an inspection has found.

An inspection report noted the high staff turnover at Toryglen Primary, and said the school has now appointed a new permanent head, which is bringing much needed “stability”.

Education Scotland wrote to parents in December outlining the situation.
The letter said: “As a result of our inspection findings we think that the school needs additional support and more time to make necessary improvements. We will liaise with Glasgow City Council regarding the school’s capacity to improve.”

Another inspection is to be carried out in a year.

Among issues to be addressed, management are to improve leadership of learning, teaching and raising attainment. Inspectors also said staff are to increase attainment and boost children’s progress in literacy and maths across the primary.
