The First Minister on 1 September 2015 launched a draft National Improvement Framework for Scottish Education. The Framework will bring together, in a more consistent way, the key information that is needed to support improvement for children. It builds on the strong foundations of Curriculum for Excellence and aims to ensure that parents, teachers, schools, and local authorities, as well as nationally, we have the access to the right type of information that tells them about the progress of children.
The Framework sets out 6 areas where activity and support is planned:
• School improvement
• School leadership
• Teacher professionalism
• Assessment of children’s progress
• Parental involvement
• Performance information.
Education Scotland are holding a number of regional events for teachers, parents and local authorities to hear more about the six areas that will be included in the Framework. The events will give stakeholders the opportunity to discuss and exchange views on what this means for them and for children. This is an opportunity to share thoughts on the draft Framework as we work together to develop it further.
The eight regional events will take place at locations across Scotland including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen.
