Education Scotland is undertaking a review of its approaches to inspection. Over the coming months, Education Scotland staff will be engaging with stakeholders to consider future approaches to inspection to ensure they take account of recent changes and current priorities in education. The review will look at all the different types of education settings currently inspected by HM Inspectors, and is not just about school inspection. We are also seeking stakeholder views on how we can further improve approaches to improvement through self-evaluation through a revised version of How Good Is Our School (3rd edition) which we aim to publish in autumn 2015. To include as many people as possible in this process, we are carrying out a range of consultation activities, including a series of regional conversation events starting in November.
The first event is being held on Tuesday 25 November 2014 – 10.00 – 15.00 at St John’s Academy, North Inch Community Campus, Gowans Terrace, Perth, PH1 5BF, if you wish to attend please contact Andrea Fraser email@example.com by close of play Wednesday 19 November.
