Read, Write, Count – Information for Schools

rwcdeliveriesunderwayRead, Write, Count is a new campaign to improve the literacy and numeracy skills of Scotland’s children by providing advice and support for the families of children in Primary 1, 2 and 3. It a key part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to raise attainment for all and close the attainment gap.

The Information for Schools document provides an overview of the resources which will be delivered to P1 – P3 children during the course of this session. The focus on the Read, Write, Count materials is developing family engagement. A Family Presentation has been created for schools to support this.



As part of the Read, Write, Count campaign P2 and P3 children across Scotland will receive a book bag (similar to that of the P1 Bookbug Pack) this Autumn. Deliveries are now underway in Highland and will be in your school between now and November.

The Scottish Book Trust have created a number of useful resources and documents on their website to support the gifting of the texts as well as using the texts within learning contexts.

It is recommended that these are gifted to the children during Book Week Scotland – 21st – 27th of November 2016. The Family Presentation and the letters for P2 and P3 can be used in the lead up to and during the gifting process.

Schools are encouraged to make links with the Highland Library Service to support the gifting of the Read, Write, Count packs.
