On the road

On the road for a lot of today – West Barns Primary sSchool for Dave Wharton's ED&R; LevenHall Nursery (Musselburgh) for Alison McNeil's ED&R; Meadowmill Sports Center for a meeting with Eamonn John and Beth McLeod about our PE, sport and physical activity strategy; Preston Lodge High School for meeting with management team to reflect upon porgress made in relation to the school's HMIe follow up report which we will have to submit in September – both Alson Wishart and I were impressed with the consistent progress which the school has made in many areas.

Back to the office for 4.30 to meet with the Principal Teachers of English. It was revealing to hear from the PTs about the issues which they are tackling and the strategies they are using to improve learning and teaching. We looked at our new Learning and Teaching Policy – it looks like there is big task for us in relation to making best use of ICT in the teaching of English.
