Review of Learning at Home (2018)

This review provides clarity and the first Scottish national definition of learning at home which is vital to help practitioners take this agenda forward. Research shows that learning at home can have significant immediate and longer term impacts on children in different ways. These include a child’s early learning, later achievements, nurture, resilience, wellbeing, social mobility and skills for life.

Supporting parents to help them with their child’s learning at home is therefore ‘a vital part of improving outcomes for children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds’ (Hunt et al, 2011).
