As promised, and following a delay (for which I apologise), I finally turn my attention to the independent review of the implementation of Additional Support for Learning legislation in Scotland. The review was chaired by Angela Morgan, and the report, titled “Support for Learning: All our Children and All their Potential” was published in June 2020. A formal response from Scottish Government and COSLA is expected in the Autumn.
There has not been much in the way of commentary on the review, with this interesting article by Alison Brown being a rare example.
I plan to take the same approach as I did with the mainstreaming guidance, which is to consider the report in shorter chunks. This keeps things manageable for me, and allows for a more in-depth analysis of each section. As always, my focus is on the legal implications.
