Report recognises OFSTED not paying enough attention to personal development and wellbeing criteria

Institute 0 1804 Article rating: 3.9

Joint report recognises that OFSTED is not paying enough attention to the personal development and wellbeing criteria in its inspection framework
Unfortunately the timing of the June general election has forced the 1st joint report between the education and health select committees to be published early.  This has resulted in a fairly short report though the review associated with it did enable the key recommendations to be made for the new government to implement.

All East Ayrshire pupils entitled to a life changing Brilliant Residential

Institute 0 78 Article rating: 4.0

East Ayrshire Council has announced that all pupils from all backgrounds across their 54 schools will be entitled to a high-quality residential learning experience during their time at school. The announcement comes shortly after the launch of a new Brilliant Residentials campaign in Scotland, which disseminates the overwhelming evidence gathered from the Learning Away programme about the numerous positive impacts a residential experience can have on pupils, staff and the wider school community. East Ayrshire is the first council in Scotland to make this commitment.
