Additional support for learning review


A review of the implementation of additional support for learning (ASL) in schools was announced in January 2019.  It concluded with the submission of the report and recommendations to Scottish Ministers and COSLA.

The review was led by Angela Morgan.

The remit of the review was to consider the implementation of the legislation: across early learning and childcare centres, primary, secondary and special schools; the quality of learning and support; the different approaches to planning and assessment; the roles and responsibilities of support staff; and the areas of practice that could be further enhanced through better use of current resources to support practice, staffing or other aspects of provision.

The report outlines the approach taken, the evidence heard and draws out a number of interconnected themes in making recommendations for improvement.

The Chair would like to thank all those who contributed to this Review.
