S5W-10712: Neil Findlay (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 11 August 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what (a) local and (b) national tracking systems will be established to support the proposals set out in, Education Governance: Next Steps - Empowering Our Teachers, Parents and Communities to Deliver Excellence and Equity for Our Children.

Answered by: John Swinney 28 August 2017

The reforms set out in Education Governance: Next Steps - Empowering Our Teachers, Parents and Communities to Deliver Excellence and Equity for Our Children are aligned to the National Improvement Framework drivers and to our commitment to reduce bureaucracy. Any potential future changes to data tracking or evaluation which may arise during the implementation of these reforms will therefore draw on existing data and evidence where available and will be subject to the requirement that they are proportionate and are firmly focussed on improving learning and teaching.
