Personal Learning

‘Parents, carers and families are by far the most important influences in a child's life. Their support can play a vital role at all stages of education.’ (Scottish Schools Parental Involvement Act 2006)

Research shows that children learn best when they:

  • understand clearly what they are trying to learn
  • know what is expected of them
  • are given feedback about the quality of their work
  • are given advice about how to improve their work
  • are involved in deciding what needs to be done next
  • know who can help them if they need it
