Changes to the law on school closures

The Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010 has been amended by Part 15 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.  Many of these changes came into effect from 1 August 2014 and the remaining changes take effect on 30 March 2015.

New Statutory Guidance on the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010 has now been published to reflect the amendments to the Act and recommendations from the Commission on the Delivery of Rural Education.

"… which signal the high value we place on learning; which people and communities can enjoy using and can be proud; which are well designed, maintained and managed and which encourage continuous engagement with learning; which are far more than just 'educational establishments' whose quality of environment supports an accessible range of services and opportunities and which enrich the communities they serve and the lives of learners and families."
