Schools and Family Learning

Our Family Learning Programme aims to:

  • Develop the knowledge, confidence and skills of parents and carers to better support their children's learning at home and at school.
  • Increase parental engagement and enhance relationships between parents and schools
  • Promote a culture of sport, health and wellbeing within the school.
  • Establish a sustainable model that supports continued delivery and provides parents with the opportunity to play an active role within the school or local community.

Our key areas of focus are:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Literacy and language development
  • Numeracy and mathematics

Programme outcomes

The intended long-term effects of The Little Sports Company’s Family Learning programme are that children will have a greater chance of achieving their potential and doing better at school as their parents will do more in the home to support their education.

We will do this by developing the skills and confidence of the parents and carers who take part in our programme and provide them with the resources needed to actively engage their children in learning in the home.

Children improve their...

  • Softer skills with regards to education and motivation to learn
  • Social and emotional skills
  • Communication skills
  • Interest in and understanding of literacy and numeracy

Parents enhance their...

  • Communication with both their child and the school
  • Understanding and empathy for their child's learning
  • Motivation to support their child's learning
  • Confidence in supporting their child's learning

Outcomes for Schools:

  • Increase in parental engagement in the school community
  • Strengthening of relationships between the school and parents
  • Positive changes within the school environment

We are actively seeking primary schools within Central Scotland who would be interested in piloting this new programme in the 2018/19 school year.
