Exc-el debate

Diary: ED&R at East Saltoun with Ann Malcolm; then on to Yester Primary in Gifford with Dorothy Hilsley; back to the office – meeting cancelled so a good hour and a half at my desk; then out to Ross High School with Maureen Jobson to meet with Dorothy Bartholomew (the acting HT) and some of her management team to discuss next year's development plan; heard that Paul Raffaelli has been appointed as Headteacher at Dunbar Grammar School. This is an outstanding appointment and I'm confident that the school will go from strength to strength.

I've left a couple of comments on
Ewan MacIntosh's blog about exc-el. I'm pleased to see that a number of East Lothian people have also left comments. If you've never done it before I'd encourage you to take part – it's easy.
