Parents' Book

Welcome to Scotland

This booklet is for parents/carers of any child or young person who has recently arrived in Scotland from another country and who has received a Welcome Pack from the EIS (Educational Institute of Scotland) teacher trade union.

The EIS campaigns for a good education for every child and young person. Our members wanted us to welcome all children and young people who have newly arrived in Scotland, and to let them know their rights. That is why we created the Welcome Packs.

The Welcome Pack that your child has received is to tell them a bit about Scotland, and what their rights are here. This booklet is to provide parents/carers with some information about the education system in Scotland. We hope you will find it useful.

The information from the booklet can be found on the webpages below.
