Family Literacies: Learning in Scotland

A leaflet about family literacies is now available on the Scottish Government website. The leaflet says parents’ learning helps children’s learning.

Family literacies learning describes work with parents to develop their own literacy and numeracy capabilities so that they can support their children’s learning. It builds on what parents and carers already do with their children, whether babies or teenagers. There is no one definition or way of delivering family literacies learning, and it may take place in a broader family learning context. It can involve working with parents alone, or with parents and children together.
