Education Scotland brings together the work of Learning and Teaching Scotland, Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education and some functions currently carried out by Scottish Government.
Each year, HMIE inspect and report on the quality of education in pre-school centres, primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, community learning and development services, colleges, and residential educational provision. They also inspect the education functions of local authorities.
The most recent inspection of East Renfrewshire Council's Education Department was carried out in 2007.
