Learning Together: Opening up Learning in All-Through Schools
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
The aim of this guide is to stimulate professional reflection, dialogue and debate about learning. Education professionals in Scotland are already aware of the key issues relating to learning through the series "Curriculum for Excellence: Building the Curriculum," the recent publication "Learning Together: Opening Up Learning" and exemplification on "The Journey to Excellence" website. This guide builds on these messages and asks staff to consider them in the specific context of all-through schools. An "all-through" school is a school which has one headteacher who manages both a primary and a secondary department within the same building or group of buildings. An all-through school takes young people from nursery or P1 through to S2, S4 or S6. The guide may also be of interest to people working in and with co-located schools, which occupy the same campus but with the primary and secondary schools being managed separately. This guide is for everyone who works to teach, support and improve the learning experiences of young people in all-through schools, including headteachers and school staff, local authority officers, partners in the local community and parents. The guide: (1) explores the educational, social and cultural contexts within which all-through schools operate in education authorities across Scotland; (2) draws together findings from inspections of all-through schools; (3) considers how school leaders, school staff and local authority officers can improve learning in all-through schools, as they continue to review and develop the curriculum they provide; and (4) provides reflective questions for use in professional discussion and development. (Contains 10 footnotes.)
