Improvement Planning

Across Bonnytoun ELC, Low Port and Springfield Primary we are commited to continuous school improvement. Each year we identify priorities based of evidence and self-evaluation with all stakeholders.Our improvement plans are unique to each school context. However, as part of the collaborative leadership model we are engaging in collaborating professional learning in some aspects e.g Community in our Curriculum - Our Shared Linlithgow Book (see 2.2 for more information) and adapted teaching to meet children's needs (differentiation).

Pupil Leadership

This year we introduced a Primary 7 economy in Low Port Primary and Springfield Primary to develop leadership. Primary 7 were consulted on designing the name of their economy, how they would be paid and their responsibilities and what they could spend their earned money on.This took unique form across both schools!Every Primary 7 pupil has a leadership role which links to specific meta skills.

Planning for Improvement

Each pupil parliament group met with the member of SLT leading each group and self-evaluated their theme using How Good is OUR School. We discussed the features of highly effective practice and rated them red, amber or green. We then used this to create an action plan for improvement for our theme.

Pupil Participation

Learner participation in schools and ELC settings includes all of the ways in which children and young people engage in practices and dialogue with educational staff, parents, carers, and community members to create positive outcomes and changes.The ‘Four Arenas of Participation’ provides a framework to help us understand and develop when, where, and how learners can have a say in schools and ELC settings.Through our school economy children have the opportunity to lead change and create positive outcomes across both schools within all 4 areas of participation.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

Leadership is recognised as one of the most important aspects of the success of any school. Leaders at all levels who are empowered, and who empower others to take ownership of their own learning, have a strong track record of ensuring the highest quality of learning and teaching. This in turn helps to ensure that all children achieve the best possible outcomes. Highly effective leadership is key in ensuring the highest possible standards and expectations are shared across schools to achieve excellence and equity for all. We want to empower the leaders at all levels in our schools. We believe good leaders are best placed to improve outcomes for our children and can drive further improvement by collaborating across boundaries.

School Leadership

How Good is Our School Part 2 This framework was developed by Education Scotland for children and young people because it is important that they have a say in how well their school is doing and how it can be improved. We know that children and young people can help to improve their schools when they have a say and it is important that you are involved in this in your school. Self-evaluation is how schools decide what is going well and what could be better. It helps schools to identify the actions they need to take to keep improving. Their contribution to this is very important. Children and young people across Scotland helped us to develop this framework. They took part in workshops and told us what they thought the most important things about school are. They helped to organise their ideas into five big themesWe used the 5 themes to create our pupil parliament sub groups.

Senior Leadership Team

This indicator focuses on collaborative leadership at all levels to develop a shared vision for change and improvement which is meaningful and relevant to the context of the school within its community. Planning for continuous improvement should be evidence-based and linked to effective self-evaluation. Senior leaders should ensure the need for change is well understood and that the pace of change is appropriate to ensure the desired positive impact for learners.The collaborative leadership model allows us to develop a shared vision for change and improvement for both schools within our community of Linlithgow. However, each school has individual improvement plans based on the evaluation and evidence of each school. Change is being implemented at a pace which is appropriate to each individual school to ensure we continue to positive impact for all our learners.
