‘Named Person’ to be assigned to every child in Scotland by August 2016

4 posts in this topic

The controversial ‘Named Person’ provision of the Children & Young People (Scotland) Act will soon apply to every child under the age of 18, and beyond, if still in school in Scotland by the end of August 2016.

In 2003 the Scottish Government introduced the policy of Getting It Right For Every Child.  Its aim was to improve all government services and protective measures provided to children, making sure that every child receives the best possible start in life regardless of their background.  This policy was then enshrined in the law by the Children & Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, to ensure that no child suffers or is exposed to harm by intervening at an earl stage in their life.

The ‘Named Person’ provision, therefore, has been introduced to fulfil the state’s obligation to maintain every child’s legal right to welfare. The provision involves the local authority assigning a person, usually a head teacher or health visitor, to every child.  This assigned person will then be the single point of contact for that child and their family or guardians.

The intention is that the ‘Named Person’ will provide a more preventative approach to Child Protection; so that no child will fall beneath the radar of the relevant authorities. Instead, if a child is in need of further assistance, the ‘Named Person’ will ensure that this help is provided.  They then have the role of coordinating the relevant government bodies to provide this support.

Why are people allowing this to happen?  The state is going to own their kids!

That is what every government wants. To have complete and utter control, over your child, and what they become in life... Pretty so, parents will not have a say in the raising of the children...

The Children & Young People (Scotland) Act

The Children & Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 became law on the 27th of March, 2014 and contains several changes to how children and young people in Scotland will be cared for. These changes will come into force in Scotland over the coming years.

Key principles

In creating the Children & Young People (Scotland) Act, the Scottish Government has tried to strengthen the rights of children and young people in Scotland by encouraging Scottish Ministers and Public Bodies to think about these rights and how they relate to their work.

It has also created new systems to support children and young people and to help identify any problems at an early stage, rather than waiting until a child or young person reaches crisis point.

The Act is very wide-ranging. It also:

increases the powers of Scotland's Commissioner for Children and Young People

makes changes to early learning and childcare

provides extra help for looked after children and young people in care

provides free school dinners for children in Primary 1-3.

The key changes introduced by the Act are outlined in more detail below.

I think the government wants to raise good citizen/soldiers who will fight and kill for whatever whimsical reason they can come up with. It won't work with semi-sensible people raising tomorrow's warfighters!!
