Consultation on a new framework on out of school care
Date: 8th October 2019
Category: Social security and childcare, Education, Leisure and Cultural Activities
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.
