Camphill Scotland has submitted a response to the Scottish Government’s consultation on Scotland’s Strategy for the Learning Provision for Children and Young People with Complex Additional Support Needs.
Potential to improve outcomes for children and young people
Camphill Scotland welcomed the strategy, noting that we believe that aligning Scotland’s Ten Year Strategy for the Learning Provision for Children and Young People with Complex Additional Support Needs 2017-2026 (“the Strategy”) with the key priorities and drivers of the National Improvement Framework is essential. We take the view that this approach will potentially make a major contribution to improving outcomes for children and young people with complex additional support needs. We also consider it is important that the Scottish Government should also take into account the insights and recommendations in the recent report published by Education Scotland, Quality and improvement in Scottish education trends in inspection findings 2008-2011, in developing the Strategy.
Supporting parental engagement
We highlighted that we strongly believe it is important to recognise the role of parents in the development and implementation of the Strategy, and welcomed the recognition of parental engagement. We believe that this will help to ensure that Education authorities take a consistent approach to engaging parents in the strategy.
