Perth & Kinross Council
Family Learning and Family Support
The multi-disciplinary North Perth Community School Team has worked with schools and communities in North Perth (within the 15% most income deprived areas (SIMD)) to produce innovative family support and family learning opportunities over the last 10 years. The focus is on tackling inequalities relating to poverty, isolation and gender and removing barriers to families accessing learning opportunities. Participation of children and families with a particular focus on including males in the family is encouraged by working in partnerships, providing crèche, free holiday activities, transport and a welcoming approach in schools. The North Perth Community School Team has always been innovative in its methodology by linking Community Learning and Development approach to family support.
