he SNP Government has launched a public consultation, asking the public to share their views on a new legal minimum number of school learning hours.
If approved, councils will be required by law to provide the equivalent of 25 teaching hours per week in primaries and 27.5 hours per week in secondaries across the school year.
The SNP Government announced plans to introduce the measures last month to protect the school week and give parents greater certainty about the number of learning hours their children can expect to receive.
The consultation allows an opportunity for parents children and young people, and everyone else with an interest to make their views known about the potential impact of this policy.
The consultation will be open until 13 June. To take part, please click the link below:
