Executive Summary

The National Improvement Framework (2016) states the central principle of education in Scotland to “create a more successful country with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish, through increasing sustainable economic growth”. This is premised on meeting the needs and aspirations of children, families and communities, enabling all to fulfil their potential, closing the poverty-related attainment gap, striving for excellence in our education system and increasing sustainable economic growth.
