That the Parliament notes that the work of Clackmannanshire Council's Education Refugee Team has been highlighted by Education Scotland as a shining example of good practice; recognises that the team, which consists of staff from across three different departments, has had to completely reimagine the delivery of support services for refugee families as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic; believes that the work of the Education Refugee Team is playing an essential role in supporting a group of people facing particular and specific challenges during these very difficult times, and congratulates everyone involved in the delivery of this important and exemplary service.
