Engaging all parents

When parents are involved in their children's education children do better on a range of measures. Yet many schools struggle to engage parents, particularly those they most want to reach. It is known that we can’t do the best possible for a young person without support provided by parents - so what more can you as schools do to ensure that parents share responsibility for their children's progress and wellbeing?  

This workshop will explore the barriers that prevent parental participation and suggest strategies for overcoming them. It will also discuss how school staff can be encouraged and supported in their efforts to engage parents. Clear, imaginative and powerful new ideas are needed to bring about genuine and sustainable change so that teachers and parents can work together in an effective partnership.  

The session will be an interactive opportunity for participants to share ideas and learn from each other. New ideas for engaging parents will be discussed and delegates will hopefully leave with an action plan for building parent participation at their school.      

This course will cost £120 which will include refreshments throughout the day. Places are limited so it is advised to book early. To book a place on this session please visit Eventbrite.      

For more information or if you have any queries please contact Parent Councils by email or call 01225460640.
