Our Quality Improvement Framework

The shared purpose of our work in Bathgate Academy is to continuously raise attainment and achievement for all our young people, including addressing the 'closing the gap' agenda, to ensure that our young people succeed in securing positive post-school destinations.

To achieve this, we ask ourselves three key questions which lie at the heart of our self-evaluation. These are:

  • How well are we doing?
  • How do we know?
  • What are we going to do now?

To answer these 3 questions we use what we term our 'Quality Improvement Framework' (QIF) which is based around an operational 'framework of activities' and 9 strategic approaches to self-evaluation which are undertaken at all levels.

The principles underpinning our QIF include:

  • placing the learner at the centre of the process
  • a climate of questioning and reflection in striving for the best possible outcome for every learner
  • ensuring a joined up and planned approach to improvement
  • supporting teachers to recognise, learn from and consistently apply existing good practice and have opportunities for learning in context                                              
  • make best use of a range of quantitative and qualitative information to inform and support decision making and action at all levels
  • ensure career long professional learning and access to educational research for staff leads to an improvement in practice that impacts positively on learners
  • support and challenge staff, learners, relevant partners and stakeholders
  • allow for flexibility and anticipate challenges, respond to needs and seek action-orientated positive solutions.
