Scots language is being used and taught increasingly in schools as a way of enhancing literacy skills and learning across the curriculum. A good example of this can be found at Sanquhar Primary School in Dumfries and Galloway where Scots is used across the school and throughout the year as appropriate: it is not just for Burns Night!
On Monday 26th January ITV Border ran a very positive feature on the work which is going on there on its magazine programme Border Life. One of Education Scotland’s four Scots Language Co-ordinators, Diane Anderson, was there to see how Scots is benefitting the learning and teaching in the school for herself.
