ECC Inspection

We have received further correspondence this morning to notify us that the ECC will now be inspected week beginning 22nd of April along with school.  You can find out more about inspection, from the Inspection and review documentation pages of Education Scotland’s website.

As part of the inspection, Inspectors gather the views of stakeholders via an online survey which is available from

I would like to encourage ALL ECC parents to now complete the survey.  Inspectors will also be meeting with groups of parents during the inspection so to be part of that discussion you should complete the survey with additional links provided to indicate your interest in taking part.

You should complete the survey by Friday 29th March.

Over the next week the children will learn more about Restorative Approaches – a new approach to how we manage certain incidents and difficulties in school – more information will be issued to parents soon,  WE hope to have an information session in school about this too.
