How our schools are performing

How you can access school statistics and find out about the steps we’re taking to improve education.

Reports and plans by schools and nurseries

Each session, every school and nursery in the Stirling Council area produces a:

  • standards and quality report, that explains the school’s performance and outlines its priorities for the coming year
  • school improvement plan, that sets out the actions the school will take to improve and address issues identified in its standards and quality report

If you want to read a specific report or plan, you can ask the school or nursery for this.
