Best of the best

We must humbly apologise to Kintore primary in Aberdeenshire. It noticed our report on March 5 ("Angus primary 'best in world'"), referring to the inspectorate's accolade of 14 very goods and one good for Monikie primary outside Carnoustie.

Kintore was quick off the mark to point out that its report last June produced 15 very goods and one good, the merely good being nothing to do with education as such but with the buildings.

What can we say?

Both schools, however, could teach the inspectorate a lesson. Its report on Kintore commented: "While they liased (sic) with one another . . ." Oops.
