Fife is Scotland’s second largest education authority and provides a broad and balanced education to over 55,000 children and young people in establishments ranging from small rural schools to state-of-the-art, purpose-built schools in urban areas.
We have more highly skilled, literate children than ever in Fife. Literacy is rising and has increased in all levels from the early stages through to post 16 education. Our educational attainment and achievement have been rising year on year, and our schools perform highly in school inspections.
The vision of Fife Education and Children’s Services is “Improving Life Chances for All”. We believe that our children should be encouraged and supported to maximise their potential.
We place children and families at the centre of everything we do, seeking to provide the space and opportunity for learning, nurture, creativity and the development of skills. Fife is committed to ensuring our learners, regardless of background, leave school with the literacy and numeracy skills required to access the wider world.
