Community welcomes Hayward Review report

Commenting on the publication of the Hayward Review of qualifications and assessment in Scotland, Dougie Atkinson, Senior Professional Officer (Scotland), said:

“We welcome the outcome of the review.

“The education system needs to find better ways of ensuring that all young people achieve their potential, and we know that academic results are not the right measure for everyone.

“We look forward to working with Scottish Government in taking the proposals forward.”
