The new SCRA report, 'How much is education included in the plans of children on supervision requirements?' reveals that in reviewing cases of 250 children, less than half of the plans had specific actions on education.
The research looked at the cases of 250 children on Supervision Requirements, aged between 3 and 17 years old. The Scottish Child Reporter Administration (SCRA) found that less than half of the plans had specific actions on education, and that these were more likely to address children's educational problems and needs than their abilities.
The research also found that the majority of plans did not include a long term view of looked after children's education. Only 6% of plans had actions to support children in achieving their ambitions.
