Pupil support

ANGUS Council’s education service has undertaken a review of its work with some of its most vulnerable pupils.

A meeting of the council’s Education Committee on Thursday, November 24, heard that the review of additional support needs (ASN) provision had taken place in partnership with a number of stakeholders including teachers and parents.

Convener Peter Nield said: “I am pleased to note that the review found that ASN services across Angus are valued by schools and families.

“However it is important that the council continues to find better and more efficient ways of working within tight budgets, while ensuring that all pupils make the most of their education and are fully included in their learning.

“The findings of this review will allow us to amend current policies and produces where appropriate to meet the ever changing needs of young people and children in Angus.”

Andover School had their ASN staff complement increased after this year’s summer break.
