Education Governance Review – Get Involved

The recently launched Education Governance Review is about how education is run in Scotland. If you are working with children and young people in any capacity, you can have your say as part of the Review. You can also help others to take part and give their views, including children and young people and parents and carers. The information below is from the Scottish Government and introduced by our Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, John Swinney.

The Scottish Government want to hear views from every part of Scotland – from children and young people, from parents, teachers, practitioners and the wider community. We want to hear from those with a formal role in our education system and those who share a stake in its success.

Come to one of our events and share your views with us – information on the event to be held in Edinburgh on Wednesday the 30th of November can be found here.

You can also read a copy of the Governance Review and you can respond to the questions raised in the Governance Review. You can share any other views you have on the Governance Review or ask questions by emailing governancereview@gov.scot. Continue reading Education Governance Review – Get Involved

Tynecastle’s Tower Poppies

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
we will remember them.

Laurence Binyon (1869-1943) published in the Times Newspaper on 21 September 1914
