Quality Improvement Officer visit

I just wanted to pass on a big thanks to the pupils and staff who put up with me popping in to their classes and asking questions as part of my ‘evaluation visit’ on Thursday 21st February. I saw some great learning and teaching going on and the pupils I talked to all spoke highly of the support they get from their teachers.

It was a pleasure to be in the school – I look forward to my next visit.

Alison Wishart, Quality Improvement Officer, East Lothian Council.
