Government policy: the outcomes the Scottish Government are aiming for, and how they plan to reach these aims.

Legislation: the laws that set rules about education in Scotland.

Guidance: documents that explain how legislation and policies should work in practice. Some guidance is statutory (must legally be followed), and some advises on best practice.
