In my last post I summarised the key statutory responsibilities for Education Authorities. I didnt intend the list of responsibilities to be exhaustive and would welcome any additions which people might like to suggest.
These series of posts are linked to the question Do I add value to childrens lives?
Ive grouped the statutory obligations into four categories: Educational Provision; Administrative; Resource provision; Educational Improvement
Duty of education authority in providing school education
Requirement that education be provided in mainstream schools
Education of children unable to attend school
Additional Support for Learning
Home to school transport
Grants clothing etc.
Rights of appeal against exclusion
Education authority's annual statement of improvement objectives
School development plans
Review of school performance
Inspection of education authority
Integrated Childrens Services
Im not convinced that Ive captured all of the obligations, nor am I sure of my categories are the best. Id welcome suggestions.
Once Ive been able to finalise these categories Ill have a go at identifying those obligations where I can directly add value to the quality of educational experience we provide in East Lothian.
