Co-ordinated Support Plans
Children and young people who have complex needs which are likely to endure and which require significant input from a body other than the Education Authority should receive a Co-ordinated Support Plan (CSP) to ensure their needs are met.
The Additional Support Needs Tribunals for Scotland hears references from parents and young people on specific matters relating to a child’s co-ordinated support plan. The Tribunals can deal with disputes about the issue or contents of CSPs and in certain circumstances, can deal with the refusal of a placing request.
The Tribunal can consider the following issues
- The need for a Co-ordinated Support Plan
- The Contents of the Co-ordinated Support Plan
- Providing the Support indicated in the Co-ordinated Support Plan in full
- Review of the Co-ordinated Support Plan
Full details of these issues can be found in A User’s Guide to the Additional Support Needs Tribunals for Scotland.
