Meeting of the Parliament 26 February 2015 : Thursday, February 26, 2015
Jim Eadie

Given the role that headteachers have as school leaders in driving up standards and reducing the attainment gap, how will the Scottish Government learn and apply in Scotland the lessons of international good practice? On what basis will schools be able to directly access the £100 million that is available through the Scottish attainment challenge fund to ensure that there are improvements in the areas of greatest deprivation and greatest need so that every child in Scotland has a decent start in life?



Meeting of the Parliament 26 February 2015 : Thursday, February 26, 2015
4. Jim Eadie (Edinburgh Southern) (SNP)

To ask the First Minister what steps the Scottish Government is taking to raise educational attainment among children from deprived communities. (S4F-02621)



Meeting of the Parliament 26 February 2015 : Thursday, February 26, 2015
Jim Eadie

Is the cabinet secretary aware of the growing anger among staff about changes to the weekend working allowance, which have created a two-tier workforce at National Museums Scotland? I tell her with regret that the management’s approach is widely viewed by the workforce as arrogant and dictatorial, given that the changes were introduced without any prior engagement with the trade unions.

I welcome the interest that the cabinet secretary has taken in the matter and her continuing willingness to engage constructively with the staff and the employer. I urge her to continue to encourage NMS to reach a resolution to the dispute.



Meeting of the Parliament 26 February 2015 : Thursday, February 26, 2015
3. Jim Eadie (Edinburgh Southern) (SNP)

To ask the Scottish Government when it last met the senior management of National Museums Scotland and what issues were discussed. (S4O-04053)

The final agenda item is consideration of the committee’s European Union priorities for 2015-16 and the appointment of a new EU rapporteur. I invite members to consider and agree the priorities in the European Commission work programme for the coming year, as set out in the paper that the clerks circulated prior to the meeting. Are we agreed?
