Keeping you up to date on the progress of the Named Person scheme and the NO2NP campaign.
NHS Forth Valley says every headteacher is to be the Named Person for every child in their school.
It says these heads will be sent copies of medical reports, medical appointments, missed appointments, and other doctors’ letters.
For every child in their school.
That’s a lot of paperwork.
In today’s Times the outgoing President of the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) demanded that the Scottish Goverment deliver on promises to cut red tape and lighten unnecessary workload.
In response, a Scottish Government spokesman said: “We are working with EIS and other partners to tackle unnecessary paperwork to free teachers to concentrate on what they do best, the delivery of teaching and learning of Scotland’s young people.”
Clearly the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.
THE NO2NP TEAM
"I oppose the Scottish Government's plan to assign a 'Named Person' to every child in Scotland because it undermines families and diverts resources from children who need them."
