Press/Media: Expert Comment


Professor Sheila Riddell was interviewed by The Education Law Consultant to express her views on a decline of (co-ordinated support plan) CSPs in the latest issue of their newsletter "The Additional Support Needs Update" (Issue 4, Spring 2019). 

Professor Riddell noted that the problem was partly attributed by the little effort most local authorities had put in to raise pupils’ and parents’ awareness of their rights and to inform school staff in general about the legislative changes. At a more fundamental level, she added, local authority and school staff had little knowledge and awareness of the ASfL legislation, believing that it has been superseded by the Children and Young People Act 2014 and the GIRFEC agenda.
