National Improvement Framework in a Nutshell

NPFS has developed this updated publication for parents which provides a helpful overview of the National Improvement Framework.

The National Improvement Framework (NIF) sets out what needs to be done to improve Scottish education so that every child can achieve their full potential. It uses accurate information, gathered from schools, local authorities and national organisations, to find out what makes a positive difference to children’s learning and to their health and wellbeing. Children, young people and parents/carers are asked about their experiences of Scottish education and these are taken into account too. All of this information is presented each year in the National Improvement Evidence Report and it leads to recommendations in the annual National Improvement Framework and Improvement Plan.
