Curriculum for Excellence
Curriculum for Excellence emphasises the key role played by parents in supporting their children’s learning. The Scottish Government works closely with partner organisations to ensure parents’ views are recognised and heard and encourages all schools to strengthen their links with parents.
The Parental Involvement Act (2006) sets out the role of parents in Scottish Education, modernising and strengthening the framework that supports parental involvement in school education. The act identifies three areas of particular importance:
Learning at Home. Parents play a vital role in their children’s learning and development. The Scottish Government aims to encourage parents to develop their children’s learning at home and in the community.
Home/School Partnership. The Act reflects the shared role and responsibility that schools, parents and carers have in working together to educate children.
Parental Representation. The Act replaced the old School Boards with Parent Councils, designed to be less formal and to encourage more and different parents to get involved in the life of their school.
