A Parents' Guide to Talking to your Child about Learning

Some children love talking about school. With others, it's like pulling teeth to get them to share even a few details about their day. Getting involved in your child's education, even in the simplest way, shows that you care about their school life.

Within the Curriculum for Excellence, the emphasis is upon children learning across a range of experiences, combined with deep meaningful learning - the 'Why do you think this?' and the 'How can you make it differently?' type of questions.  By asking these higher order questions, this stimulates conversation; it allows the child to showcase what they have been learning at school whilst it allows the adult an insight into the child's day at school. 

The attachment,'A Parents' Guide to Talking to your Child about Learning' provides some examples which can be used to help you have those meaningful conversations in relation to your child's learning.

Wellbeing Indicators

What is Wellbeing?

To help make sure everyone has a common understanding of what 'Wellbeing' means, we describe it in terms of eight indicators:

SAFE;

HEALTHY;

ACHIEVING;

NURTURED;

ACTIVE; 

RESPECTED;

RESPONSIBLE;

INCLUDED; 

These Wellbeing Indicators help to make it easier for everyone to be consistent in how they consider the quality of a child or young person's life, at a particular point in time, and to ensure that we are continually improving these outcomes for children, young people and their families.
