To ask the Scottish Government further to the publication, A Blueprint for 2020: the Expansion of Early Learning and Childcare in Scotland, when it will publish the revised statutory guidance on the Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004.
Answered by: Mark McDonald 11 November 2016
The statutory guidance is being revised in light of the amendments to the Additional Support for Learning Act which were brought forward through the Education (Scotland) Act 2016. The statutory guidance will be published for consultation, alongside non-statutory guidance and draft regulations in 2017.
