Count Us In: young people newly arrived in Scotland

HM Inspectorate of Education (HMIE) has published a report entitled, ‘Count Us In: A sense of belonging: Meeting the needs of children and young people newly arrived in Scotland’.

This study into the educational experiences of ‘New Scots’ looked at the impact of numbers of newly-arrived children and young people from migrant families on education services.

The task involved a survey of all 32 local authorities and direct fieldwork with 12 local authorities. The fieldwork involved interviews with education officers, visits to a sample of schools and discussions with staff, children and parents.

  1. I was present at the launch of this report and was disappointed that the attendance was so poor. The report contains excellent examples of wonderful initiatives which I feel should be studied by all Senior Management Teams regardless of the size of school.
