Children's Parliament,Save the Children UK

As part of Save the Children’s Read On. Get On. Campaign, which aims to have all children in Scotland reading confidently by the age of 11, Children’s Parliament was commissioned by Save the Children to undertake direct engagement with children of primary school age.

Children’s Parliament staff visited three primary schools and facilitated a series of five creative workshops with children from P1 to P7 in each school. Children came to the workshops with differing abilities and levels of engagement of interest in reading. In total, 103 children (47 boys and 56 girls) took part in the consultation.

The workshops introduced children’s rights in order to allow the children to explore issues around their participatory rights, including their right to express their views and to have them taken seriously. Within this framework, the children then discussed their experiences of and attitudes towards reading.
