School age childcare delivery framework: child rights and wellbeing screening

Child rights and wellbeing impact assessment (CRWIA) screening has been completed for the School Age Childcare Delivery Framework 2023 as a supporting measure to determine whether a CRWIA is required.

2. What aspects of the policy/measure will affect children and young people up to the age of 18?

The Articles of the UNCRC and the child wellbeing indicators under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 apply to all children and young people up to the age of 18, including non-citizen and undocumented children and young people.

The Delivery Framework sets out our overarching Programme vision, which is underpinned by our key policy drivers, these are:

  • Tackling Child Poverty
  • Improving Outcomes for Children and Families.

Children are at the centre of our policy design and development being included within our key priorities, action areas and approach. The policy intention is to reduce inequalities which exist for children and young people in relation to access to activities round about the school day.

However, the Delivery Framework will not provide detailed timescales for delivery or implementation, nor will it set out any changes to policy at this stage. As a result, children and young people will not be directly affected by the Delivery framework.
