Performance and assessment reports help schools look at their strengths and areas for development, compare their performance with other schools and develop plans to raise their standards. Particular focus is on literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing.
Monitoring performance and using the resulting information to secure improvement is an important part of the work of head teachers, school staff and officers within Children's Services.
Every year each school publishes a Standards and Quality report which highlights the school's major achievements, current performance and targets. Schools also produce an annual School Improvement Plan which details how the school will improve performance, including how they will involve parents in those improvements. You can see this report and plan on each school's website.
Schools are regularly inspected by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education (HMIe). There are links on each school page to the most recent inspection report for that school.
Further information about schools, including attendance figures, can also be found on the Scottish Schools Online website.
