Report on the Implementation of the Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
The Additional Support for Learning Act is a key piece of legislation in Scotland's efforts to achieve a more inclusive society and to give all young people the access to the learning opportunities they need in order to meet their potential. The Act also has a key role to play in the day-to-day preventative action that schools can take to be inclusive and to avoid longer-term blights such as the risk of not being in education, employment or training when they move on from school. This report recognises that education authorities and schools have taken significant steps towards ensuring that all children and young people receive a more personalised education aimed at maximising success for all. The importance of intervention at the early stages, as well as prompt intervention at all stages is widely recognised by authorities. In that respect, the role of professionals such as school nurses, family support workers and home-school link officers adds an invaluable dimension. This report identifies ways in which the Scottish Government, authorities, and schools can take action to improve the quality of partnership working between agencies, and the support provided for children and young people with additional support needs. Provided are 7 key points to consider when taking action to improve services. (Contains 2 graphs and 20 footnotes.) [For the summary sheet, see ED544587.]
