Welcome to the website for the South East Improvement Collaborative!
The South East Improvement Collaborative is the term being used to describe the collaboration between City of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Fife, Midlothian and Scottish Borders to improve schools, early learning settings and other services for children and young people.
Geographically, the South East of Scotland is a large, diverse area. Overall, the geography of the South East resembles that of Scotland as a whole, with similar proportions living in rural areas, small towns and urban areas.
The South East Improvement Collaborative Plan is based on robust analysis of available data leading to prioritisation of our initial two areas of focus:
Improving attainment and achievement, including closing the attainment gap;
Quality Improvement in schools and early years’ settings.
As a South East Improvement Collaborative our work is based on the National Improvement Framework and GIRFEC, taking account of how we will improve outcomes and close the attainment gap by having an impact at all levels of the system.
Our plan has a focus on the key areas that we have identified from our analysis of Children’s Services plans, local authority plans, school plans and robust data, the National Improvement Framework outcomes and what our staff, parents, children and young people are telling us.
