Education Scotland 

“Most young people are motivated to achieve well. Young people increasingly have stimulating opportunities to become independent and responsible learners. Most staff make very productive contributions to helping young people become successful as learners. Where practice is most effective, teachers use information and communications technology (ICT) well to enrich young people’s learning.”
