Guidance for education authorities.

Legislative context

24. While the legislative context is referenced throughout this guidance, a national framework for all practitioners and partners, in every setting has been published which aims to help in supporting learners from early years to positive, sustained destinations. It provides an overview of the legislation, policies, frameworks and strategies relating to supporting learners. Annex B of this guidance provides a further link to the national framework but also sets out how some of the key elements of legislation fit together in relation to children unable to attend school due to ill health.
