Personal Support for Pupils in Scottish Schools
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
Many Scottish schools provide good personal support for their pupils. In primary schools, class teachers have played the key role while in special schools, teams of staff have worked together to promote the personal and social development of pupils. In secondary schools, an approach built around specialist guidance teachers was created some 30 years ago and, since then, has been a distinctive and important means of support for generations of young people. This report by HM Inspectorate of Education highlights significant strengths in the current approaches but also identifies some important areas where improvement is clearly needed. The report draws directly from evidence gathered from HMIE's inspection programme. It highlights encouraging developments in practice and provides an important point of reference for all those involved in designing and taking forward new models of pupil support. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
