Scottish Parliament Inquiry into poverty and attainment – CLD views needed!

The Education and Skills Committee of the Scottish Parliament is holding an inquiry into Attainment and achievement of school aged children experiencing poverty.

The scope of the enquiry extends beyond what happens in schools: “We want to hear from those with practical experience who can tell us from personal experience what needs to change. If you are a parent/guardian/carer, a young person, a teacher or other school staff or someone who works with young people and/or families who experience poverty, the Committee wants to hear from you”.

This is a great opportunity to widen the debate about education reform and show why all aspects of CLD have vital parts to play in raising achievement – make sure you get your comments to the Committee by 22 March.

The Standards Council will be responding and would welcome your input – let us know your views email:
