Hyslop Offers Support to Donaldson’s Following HM Report into Donaldson’s School
Linlithgow MSP, Fiona Hyslop has written to the new Principal offering support as she takes forward improvements set out in the latest HM Education Scotland Report which was published on Thursday 11th of December. The report from last month’s unannounced inspection took place after concerns in the school came to light. There have been resignations of several Board Members including the Chair as a result.
“This is a very direct and challenging report, clearly Donaldson’s have not been operating in the manner that parents and the wider community would have expected.
“I appreciate the swift and decisive action taken by HM Inspectors at Education Scotland, the Care Inspectorate and the Scottish Government. There were clearly faults at Board level and a reinvigorated Board Membership is required to support and govern the school.
“The report sets out a clear plan of action for Donaldson’s and as the local MSP I will provide what support I can to the school as they go through the process of implementing improvements that have been set out.”
