Dear FOI_CCT,

https://www.gov.scot/publications/local-...

Powers and duties
Local authorities have a number of powers and duties which are set out in legislation:

mandatory duties - such as providing schooling for 5-16 year olds and social work services

permissive powers - such as economic development and recreation services

regulatory powers - such as trading standards, environmental health and licensing for taxis and public houses

I am requesting the mandatory duties you have as Statutory Powers you are relying on within legislation to Social Transition Children under 16 years of age - please see Education Scotland Link for definition of Social Transition:
