The Literacy Team at Education Scotland is hosting a free conference for parents at the King James Hotel, Edinburgh, on Saturday 29th September 10am-3pm

Once children have mastered the basics of learning to read, many parents are concerned about how best to develop their child’s skills and encourage a love of books. The conference will support parents in helping children to successfully negotiate an information rich world and to become readers for life.

Nicola Morgan, the award-winning author, will deliver the keynote address. The conference will explore some of the perceived barriers to reading and discuss how parents can best support their children.

Any parents who wish to register for the event should call Margaret McGuinness on (0141) 282 5064 or use the following online form:
