A change in the law for school starters in Scotland — through FOI

September 28, 2021 from 3:50 pm to 4:00 pm

Speaker: Patricia Anderson (Give Them Time, Scotland)

Part of the Right to Know across Europe: impacts and lessons learned session of TICTeC Show and Tells 2021
Tuesday 28th September, 15:00 – 16:00 BST

In this Show & Tell, Patricia from the Give Them Time campaign speaks about how Freedom of Information requests, sent via WhatDoTheyKnow.com, helped them get the law changed, so that more children in Scotland can benefit from more time at nursery school. Thanks to the campaign, from 2023, all children in Scotland who legally defer their school start date, as they’re not quite ready, will be automatically entitled to a further year of nursery funding.
