Rockfield Primary School in Oban has been invited to create a Gaelic film for Education Scotland’s National Improvement Hub, as a leading example to others.


The National Improvement Hub is a gateway to educational improvement resources and support. It provides access to resources to help schools improve practice, increasing the quality of learners’ experiences and their outcomes.
