National Improvement Framework

National Improvement FrameworkNational Improvement Framework for Scottish Education

Following the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP’s launch of the National Improvement Framework for Scottish Education on 6 January 2016, the Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, John Swinney MSP, launched the revised National Improvement Framework and Improvement Plan for Scottish education on 13 December 2016.  The National Improvement Framework evidence report for 2016 was also published.

The Framework is central to the Scottish Government’s commitment to raising attainment for all, and closing the poverty-related attainment gap.

The Improvement Plan brings together improvement activity from both the Delivery Plan and the Curriculum for Excellence Implementation Plan and also incorporates the national improvement plan on parental and family engagement.   It takes into account the information published today in the Evidence Report.  From now on, it serves as the single, definitive plan for securing educational improvement.

The Achievement of CfE Levels, 2015/16 statistical information as well as the Summary Statistics for Schools in Scotland document were also published on 13 December 2016.
