Talking about Costs and Money at School is an animation and resource package based on the experiences of over 1800 parents and carers across Scotland and developed in partnership with the National Parent Forum of Scotland.
Talking about school costs and money can be difficult but doing it well can help to break down financial barriers to education and make sure families get the support they need.
Join us at one of our upcoming webinars to hear all about the resource and what parents and carers say they want and need when it comes to communication about costs and money in their schools.
