Out of School Care Survey 2015

The City of Edinburgh Council is committed to supporting the development of childcare services including Breakfast Clubs, Afterschool Clubs and Holiday Provision across the Authority. As a requirement of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, the Council also has a duty to consult, plan and publish these plans in relation to Out of School Care provision in the city.

We have carried out a mapping of current Out of School Care provision and have developed a Survey Monkey in order to consult with as many parents and carers as possible. We are very keen to canvas everyone’s views for whom Out of School Care is of relevance. The systematic gathering of data will help us to establish existing barriers, identify where challenges are presented and help us to plan for future Out of School Services for all of our families.
