Founded in 1989, Leckie has been publishing educational books specially for Scotland for the past thirty years and has helped thousands of schools with their teaching and students with their revision. Now part of the Collins family, Leckie publishes resources for over twenty subjects in secondary – and it has recently expanded its publishing into primary, with Primary Maths for Scotland. Once known for its market-leading revision guides, it is now just as well-loved by teachers for its innovative classroom resources.
As Scotland's leading animal welfare charity and as a reporting agent to the Procurator Fiscal, the Scottish SPCA has a duty to build a better world for animals. Our free ‘Prevention through Education’ programme teaches empathy and compassion towards animals and reaches over 200,000 school pupils each year.
We constantly evolve the programme, which fits with the STEM curriculum and is proven to reduce tolerance towards animal cruelty and increase awareness of animal sentience.
Recently, we’ve introduced robotics in classrooms. Children get the opportunity to build an animal-like robot and code it. This allows them to recognise animals are born with senses and how important it is people are aware of these when interacting with them.
This unique approach captures children’s imagination, encourages them to have fun and be creative, and emphasises how amazing animals really are.
