Scottish Government Guidance to Support Home Learning


Scottish Government Guidance to Support Home Learning

New guidance to support the home learning of children and young people during the new term was issued on 20 April 2020.  It aims to build on the significant amount of positive work that has already been undertaken by teachers and education professionals across Scotland to support learning at home, as well as the advice and resources that are already available.


The guidance covers three main areas:


1) learning and teaching at home: this includes support for digital learning; children who are likely to be disproportionately impacted; and learners with additional support needs

2) parental involvement and engagement: this includes details of local and national support and how local authorities/schools will require a different approach to being updated on a child’s development

3) support for teachers and school leaders: including advice on learning resources; supporting pupils’ and staff health and wellbeing; and on leading colleagues and teams during this period
