Details:
The Additional Support Needs Tribunals for Scotland (ASNTS) were established in November 2005 by The Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004 which made provision for the establishment of the Tribunals which now hear cases involving children and young people who face the biggest barriers to learning. There is also amending legislation which introduces some new changes, Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2009, which apply from the 14 November 2010. The Additional Support Needs Tribunals for Scotland consider appeals (references) made by parents and young people against decisions of Education Authorities regarding the provision of educational support. Co-ordinated support plans (CSPs) are now prepared for children with additional support needs. The Additional Support Needs Tribunals hears references involving children and young people who either have, or are potentially entitled to have, a co-ordinated support plan.
