Educational Services to Support Additional Support Needs - Moray - Co-ordinated Support Plan
Record Number: 2706Website: http://www.moray.gov.uk/
The Additional Support for Learning Act 2004 requires the Education Authority to open and keep a Co-ordinated Support Plan (CSP) for children and young people with complex or multiple additional support needs who require significant support from the education authority and one or more other agencies.
Further information about additional support for learners can be found here: Additional Support
The Co-ordinated Support Plan (CSP) takes the form of a confidential document which the education authority keeps for each child or young person and a full copy is given to parents. This enables the parents, school and local authority to check that the childs needs are identified and regularly reviewed.
Parents have the right to request a full assessment of their child from the age of three years, with a view to establishing if there are additional support needs which require a CSP. Without the full co-operation and participation of the parents it is not possible to provide an accurate assessment - they will be consulted at all stages. Parents will also be shown the CSP in draft form so that they can express their views. Parents have the right of appeal against the content of parts of the CSP and over deciding whether or not a CSP should be opened. When a copy of the CSP is issued to them, all parents are told of the action which they must take in order to make an appeal, for example, reference to the Additional Support Needs Tribunal.
All parents have the right to make a Placing Request - that is, to ask that their child should attend a particular school provided the authority does not incur additional expense. Initially, all such requests are made to the Director of Educational Services. In these instances, where a pupils additional support needs are such that they cannot be catered for in the local school, parents will have had contact with the educational psychologist who will have suggested a particular resource.
