Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004

Section 2 – Co-ordinated support plans

7.This section specifies who is eligible for a co-ordinated support plan. A child or young person requires a co-ordinated support plan if they have enduring additional support needs that have a significant adverse effect on their education and that require support from services outside education.

8.The duty to provide and maintain a co-ordinated support plan only applies for those children and young people for whose school education the education authority are responsible. This means pupils at local authority schools and pre-school centres, independent special schools where the education authority are meeting the fees, independent pre-school centres that are in partnership with the authority, or places other than schools where the authority are providing education.
