More about the Named Person

How does the Named Person role work during school holidays?

The Children & Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 places a duty on local authorities to ensure continuity of the Named Person service during holiday periods or if staff are on sick leave. It also says they must advertise how the Named Person service can be accessed outside term time.

Arrangements during school holidays will build on current best practice and it will be for local authorities to ensure processes are in place.
