Analysis report following the public consultation on guidance for users of the Education (Scotland) Act 1980.

Overview of consultation responses

5. The consultation questionnaire contained 11 questions. All questions with the exception of question 13, sought a yes or no answer with additional text fields allowing respondents to provide comments to explain their selection.

6. Fourteen responses from individuals and organisations were received following the consultation. Responses were received from two individuals, six local authorities, Bord na Gaidhlig, Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance, Children and Young People Commissioner Scotland, Scottish Public Service Ombudsman, Centre for excellence for looked after children in Scotland and National Parent Forum Scotland.

7. All respondents were given the opportunity to submit their responses anonymously, or for their responses to be anonymised in reporting. Prior to publication, all responses were moderated to ensure no inappropriate language or information which could potentially identify individuals by name.

8. Twelve out of fourteen respondents have given consent for their responses to be made public. These responses have been published on the Scottish Government's Consultation Hub and they can be viewed by accessing the following link:
