This morning I visited one of our residential units for children with my colleague David Bain, Quality Improvement Officer for Inclusion. (I now fervently hope I have his title right!) We were there on a fact finding exercise to see the educational provision offered to our young people in care after school hours. First of all they deserve a huge round of applause – when you realise how well they care for young people with such diverse needs, I am always bowled over by the level of commitment the staff show. The first thing we need in education or social work is compassion, and I think that too often we forget this. At some point over the next few weeks David and I hope to visit the two remaining units in Argyll for a similar exercise.

This afternoon I spent some time with the staff of Innellan Primary primarily looking at an audit of their skills, and then looking at how to make good use of their interactive whiteboard in the classroom. It is always good to get out to school, and I hope they found the session both enlightening and practically useful.
