Education and Learning
Clackmannanshire Council Education
The Education Service is committed to lifelong learning, giving children the best possible start in life as they progress from nursery to school and beyond. Promoting the wellbeing of our children and young people so they can develop a positive sense of self and wellbeing is a key priority.
I took up the post of Chief Education Officer in June 2016 and my Senior Management Team arrived over the last few months. With the full support of our Headteachers, Elected Members, Chief Executive and our corporate colleagues, we are committed to achieving Excellence and Equity – raising attainment, tackling inequity and ensuring that high aspirations and positive outcomes are the expected norm for every child in Clackmannanshire.
Alongside the strategic leadership, a wider improvement plan, related to the National Priorities and the National Improvement Framework key drivers (http://bit.ly/2jPvacw) is being put in place. Shared ownership and awareness of the education “big goals” is key.
It is clear that the needs of our children and young people are best met by working effectively with parents and carers. I believe we need to strengthen parental involvement in education and to provide flexible systems to enable parental engagement and representation.
The school your child attends is where it all happens and I encourage you to get involved in what ever way you can, be that via Twitter, Class DoJo, giving a helping hand or buying a ticket for a concert! Read with your child every day!
It is our intention to ensure that our relationships are characterised by mutual trust and respect, there is transparency and equity in the use of our resources and we are all ambitious for our children and young people.
