Education (Scotland) Act 2016

Amendments of section 9: duty to prepare co-ordinated support plans

82.Paragraph 8 of the schedule to the Act amends section 9(2)(d) of the 2004 Act. The effect is that, where an authority establishes under the 2004 Act that a child for whose school education it is responsible requires a co-ordinated support plan, the plan prepared must contain the name and contact details of an officer of the authority from whom the child can obtain advice and futher information. The duty to include such contact details applies only if the authority is satisfied that the child has capacity to understand the advice and information and where receiving the information would not adversely impact their wellbeing. Paragraph 8 also makes various other minor textual amendments to section 9(2)(d).
