Letters in the Last Month

Published: Tue 14 Mar 2017

The inspection report produced by HM Inspectors following our inspection that took place at the end of November 2016 has been published today

I am delighted that the strengths of the school have been recognised in terms of our high attainment levels; the variety of courses on offer; our successes in partnership working; and the emerging, innovative practice in the use of technology.

I welcome the recommendations contained in the letter and the feedback from HMIe and have already started working with staff, East Lothian Council Education Department, and the Chair of the Parent Council as to how we move forward.  We are progressing quickly with recommendations relating to practice and processes. Other changes around planning, parental engagement and reinvigorating the vision, values and aims, are going to require more time, and we would like to involve all members of the school community.

If you would like to hear more about how we plan to move forward and how you can help, there will be a meeting for any interested parent/carer on 19 April at 6.30pm in the Hall.   I propose to hold update meetings throughout the time between now and the return of the Inspectors, and will inform you of those in due course.

I am looking at this as a real opportunity for Knox Academy to build on the undoubted strengths that we have.  This is an exciting time for everyone in Knox’s community as we now have a mandate to progress towards excellence in all areas.

The National Improvement Framework has been introduced to provide better information about how children and young people are progressing and how well schools, councils and the Scottish Government are supporting their learning. That information will help teachers and others who work to support children and young people to understand where improvement is needed. It will also help schools, councils and national government to see which learning, teaching and assessment approaches are working well, and where changes need to be made.

The Scottish Government has published the following documents with information for parents/carers:
