What are your experiences of ASL?

The Additional Support for Learning Review in Scotland is looking for feedback.

By Richard Fraser, Editor

A review of the implementation of additional support for learning (ASL) in schools in Scotland was announced in January 2019.

Between October and December 2019, the review, led by Angela Morgan, is gathering views and experiences, including on: 

  • how ASL works in practice, across early learning and childcare centres, primary, secondary and special schools (including enhanced provision, services and units);
  • the quality of learning and support;
  • different approaches to planning and assessment;
  • the roles and responsibilities of support staff, teaching staff, leadership role, education authorities and national agencies;  and
  • the areas of practice which could be further enhanced through better use of current resources to support practice, staffing or other aspects of provision.

It is anticipated that a report with recommendations for next steps will be available in Spring 2020.

Feedback to the review

Angela Morgan would like to hear about your own experiences of ASL. She is particularly keen to hear examples of where things work well. 

  • If you’ve had a difficult time, what by contrast has made the difference?
  • What would you like to see more or less of ?
  • Where should we best focus efforts for positive change?

All contributions to the review will be treated and respected as anonymous.
