Scottish Parliament's report: ASN

Scottish ParliamentThe Scottish Parliament's report on ASN has been published - and the Scottish Parliament Education Committee have recommended a quality assessment and review of policy implementation and  availability of additional support in schools.

Importantly they stress the need to listen to children, families and staff's own experiences:

"This review should place emphasis on the direct experiences of parents (and by extension the children themselves), teachers and support staff in schools."
