Attainment Scotland Fund evaluation - voice of children and young people: thematic evaluation report 2024

This report maps out children and young people’s engagement in decision-making across the Scottish Attainment Challenge to assess the extent that children and young people are engaged in decision-making; how this differs across schools and local authorities, and what is working well.

Next steps

A detailed programme of activity for this thematic strand will be developed in consultation with the internal ASF Evaluation Working Group and the external Evaluation Advisory Panel. However, a number of key areas are suggested for ongoing focus, including extending the focus of the thematic strand to families’ and communities’ involvement in decision-making; a consideration of what is working and what could be improved in engaging children, young people and their families and communities in decision-making; and examination of the difference that involvement in decisions makes.
