New measures to improve education provision for children with special educational needs have been welcomed by Cosla.

Education spokesperson Helen Law said: 'Cosla welcomes the guidance to bring the length of the school week in special schools into line with mainstream schools and further guidance on the rights of children with special educational needs to be included in mainstream schools.

'This strengthens our view that special needs children deserve the same chances and learning opportunities as other children and must be treated fairly wherever they are educated mainstream or otherwise.

'This announcement by Cathy Jamieson clearly demonstrates a continuing commitment from the executive to tackle an important equal opportunities issue and Cosla fully supports them in this.

'Cosla would however want to discuss with the minister at an early date the real costs of implementing SEN policies in schools and authorities.'
