Participation and Learning resource

This Participation and Learning resource explores the issues around participation and decision making in school communities. It illustrates how Scottish school communities are enabling children and young people, teachers, parents and others to get involved in all aspects of school life. The resource was developed by Save the Children in partnership with Learning and Teaching Scotland and is being distributed to schools in hard copy as a book and accompanying DVD. More details about the resource can be found at the Participation and Learning web site.
