There is a wide range of information available online about education in Scotland.
Parentzone Scotland is a one-stop website for information and advice on education and Learning in Scotland. It also has a wide range of information to help parents support their children’s learning. Information on the website is divided into the following seven sections:
- My child
- Learning in Scotland
- Learning at home
- Find a school
- My school
- Additional support
- Getting involved
However, finding the right information can be difficult when you are not sure where to start or which keywords to search for. Knowing which information applies to your family and/or your child, can be challenging.
Parentzone Scotland has specific information for armed forces families (click here to read more). Parents can then navigate to the other pages of Parentzone Scotland for further information about Learning in Scotland and to help support your child’s learning when required.
Parents can sign up to receive a copy of Education Scotland’s Newsletters for the latest developments in Scottish education.
