New website created to help parents and carers support learning at home

Aberdeen City Council’s Children’s and Family Services team have created a Digital Learning Hub website to help parents and carers support home learning in the run up to the city’s schools re-opening.

Aberdeen’s schools are scheduled to re-open in August for the new academic year and in the meantime, pupils have been accessing their curriculum remotely at home.

The website is designed to help parents and carers build confidence and knowledge to support their children’s learning at home. With so much information available online, the team has created a trusted place to share quality information and reliable advice as well as helpful tips, links and ideas for learning, supporting parenting and family wellbeing.

Councillor John Wheeler, Education Operational Delivery Convener, said: “While schools are gearing up for their return in August, it’s important that we can provide and support home learning in the interim.

“Our Education Services team have done an outstanding job throughout the lockdown in maintaining learning and the new Hub designed by our Children’s and Family Services team is a really welcome additional support which I’m sure will be appreciated by parents and carers”.

The website, which is updated regularly with new content can be viewed here https://sites.google.com/ab-ed.org/parent-learning-hub.
