Parental Engagement

Most children have two main educators: their parents and their teachers. Both have crucial roles to play and it's vital that the role of 'parent educator' doesn't fade when their child is at school.

Our parental engagement tools help you to keep parents informed, updated and included in the school community and in their child’s progress.

What's the benefit?

 

Engaged parents are more informed, involved and active parents. Armed with a stake in their child’s education, they’re more likely to develop a rewarding dialogue with you, and ensure that their child makes the most of their time at school.
