2010/11 55.8% achieved 1 + Highers (No ASN)
Variation in/across authorities
Lack of data on outcomes
Low expectations (CURREV) Some bad news:
Places duties on Scottish Ministers to ensure sufficient information and statistics on:
the number of children with additional support needs,
the factors giving rise to the additional support needs
the types of support provided; and
the cost of providing that support. The legislation and policy landscape Education (Additional Support for learning) Scotland Act 2004 as amended in 2009 Meeting learning needs: update on current legislation and national developments Five year plan between now and 2016 National definition of ASNs
Articulate CSP and GIRFEC Child’s plan
Improve post 16 transitions for complex needs
Report on the impact of provision for ASNs
Devolve funding to schools
Improve accountability of NHS and social work
Revise the code of practice Task Implications for Education Scotland and school inspections of ASL review How can we improve our reporting of the impact of ASN provision?
How well do we report on early years assessment of emerging ASNs? Compliments ongoing work to support implementation of the Act.
4 year plan to support aspects the legislation and focuses on:
the support available for particular groups of children or young people and areas for further support in implementation,
building capacity in staff to provide support,
law and guidance.
The Scottish Government and Education Scotland, working with local authorities, relevant health board staff and universities, as appropriate, should continue to build on the developments in guidance and advice on meeting the curricular and learning needs of children and young people with complex additional support needs within the framework of guidance and support to help those contributing to the learning of children and young Curriculum for Excellence and GIRFEC. In particular, they should provide more specific people at the earliest stages of cognitive and all round development. Recommendation 9 The Scottish Government, Education Scotland and the Care Inspectorate should work with local authorities and other relevant quality assurance agencies to develop a performance management framework to quality assure the implementation of GIRFEC and Additional Support Legislation. This should include the introduction of meaningful performance data complemented by relevant quality indicators specifically related to children and young people with complex additional support needs. Recommendation 12 Education Scotland, working with the GTCS and relevant training providers in universities, further education colleges, voluntary organisations and local authorities should consider how to lead and develop learning communities of expert professionals at local, regional and national levels to advise, support and contribute to the professional learning of teachers and other school staff working with complex additional support needs. Particular consideration should be given to how GLOW can support this development. Recommendation 2 How do we evaluate children and young people's wellbeing in inspections?
How can we provide better performance data on the effectiveness of integrated working to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable? Task The Doran Review (November 2012) The Doran Review (November 2012) Places duties on Scottish Government to:
further the rights of children and young people
promote awareness of the UNCRC
ensure collective responsibility for delivering rights for children is at the forefront of public service (GIRFEC)
define wellbeing (GIRFEC) 3 key areas for improvement Increase annual pre-school education for 3 and 4 year olds and looked after 2 year olds from 475 to 600 hours
Named person for all children from birth to 18
Care leavers helped until 25 years All public services will have to show how they are taking children’s rights forward Task How will Education Scotland take greater account of children and young people's rights in our inspections?
