In Busby Primary School pupil attainment is a key priority for the school. The school uses its own tracking system as well as East Renfrewshire’s Tracking database to ensure that all pupils are making progress. The school also uses ERC’s Standardised testing of pupils in P3, 5 and 7 to further ensure pupils are on track.

As part of the drive to raise attainment and to ensure that each child’s needs are met, the school organises screening and intervention procedures in Primary 1, 2, 4 and 6. This involves class teachers and support staff in fully assessing every child at these stages using various assessment tools, including standardised test results.  Thereafter each child’s curriculum is reviewed, especially for language and mathematics, and appropriate action and next steps are agreed.  Implementation of the agreed action points takes place in the classroom over the remaining session, during which progress is reviewed and further action agreed.  Using human resources in this focused way ensures that all children are supported at crucial stages throughout the school and that teaching, support and management staff monitors their progress closely.

Within each curricular area there are 6 levels of attainment:

Level A            -should be attainable in the course of P1 – 3 by almost all pupils.

Level B            -should be attainable by some pupils in P3 or even earlier, but certainly by most in P. 4.

Level C            -should be attainable in the course of P4 – 6 by most pupils.

Level D            -should be attainable by some pupils in P5 – 6 or even earlier, but certainly by most in P7.

Level E            -should be attainable by some pupils in P7 – S1, but certainly by most in S2.

Level F - should be attainable in part by some pupils and be completed by a few pupils in the course of P7 – S2.


Busby Primary offers a wide range of extra curricular activities. We recognise that pupils should have a wide range of opportunities from which they realise success and achievement.
