Abstract

Since the implementation of the Additional Support for Learning legislation, the proportion of pupils identified as having ASN has increased. There is also considerable variation between local authorities in the proportion of pupils identified as having ASN. These changes are explored in this briefing using data from the 2015 Pupil Census published by Scottish Government.
