Since 2002, East Lothian schools have recorded IEPs targets for pupils with additional support needs on formats developed by North Ayrshire Council. These documents are ’stand alone’ and do not link to our management information system. The North Ayrshire format is also not aligned with educational targets within Curriculum for Excellence.
Following extensive research and consultation, a number of schools in East Lothian have been asked to pilot the use of SEEMIS Pupil Plans as an alternative IEP format. The SEEMIS Pupil Plan has been developed by City of Edinburgh Council in collaboration with SEEMIS and the Scottish Government and is now used in an increasing number of Scottish authorities.
A decision will be taken later this session as to whether all East Lothian schools will use this format in the future.
Schools will be kept informed of any further developments. However if you would like further information about the pilot, please get in touch with Linda Gaughan at firstname.lastname@example.org
