Inspection Advice Note (2012-13)

This advice note supports colleagues involved in pre-school, school and learning community inspections from August 2012. 

It takes account of progress with Curriculum for Excellence in centres, schools and learning communities. It sets out an adjustment in expectations, in line with national implementation expectations, for HM Inspectors' evaluation of QI 5.1 (Curriculum) and QI 5.9 (Improvement through self-evaluation).

HM Inspectors have continued to collate evidence from inspections and other activities which help to inform the Curriculum for Excellence Management Board. The note meets our commitment to provide guidance on the implications of progress with Curriculum for Excellence.

A new Inspection Advice Note (2013-14) was issued in June 2013 to support colleagues involved in pre-school, school and learning community inspections from August 2013.
