Closing date: 6th December 2019

The consultation, published by Scottish Government, seeks views to help design a strategic framework around before school, after school and holiday childcare and activity provision.

Scottish Government has published a draft framework based on engagement work to date. This draft framework:

  • considers the current picture of out of school care in Scotland
  • sets out a vision for out of school care in Scotland and consider the changes required to deliver that vision
  • asks questions about what the Scottish Government can do to realise that vision.

Responses to the consultation will inform the development of a strategic framework for out of school care which will help inform future policies. The strategic framework is expected to be published before the end of this parliamentary term.
