New Rights for children with Additional Support Needs

Posted on

As of 10th January 2018 there has been a significant change in the rights of children with ASN's in Scotland aged 12-15 years under the Education (Scotland) Act 2016.

They will now have the same rights as parents/carers & young people over 16 under legislation, to be much more involved in their support at school. 

Enquire have produced a guide with additional factsheets on this Act.

The Scottish Government explain the amendment.
