Parents make a difference:
Parents, carers and families are by far the most important influences on children’s lives. Parents who take on a supportive role in their children’s learning make a difference in improving achievement and behaviour. Their support can play a vital role at all stages of education.
Parents in partnership with schools:
The active involvement of parents in the life of the school can help promote a learning community in which pupils can engage positively with school staff and their peers. Schools can benefit from developing positive partnerships with parents by involving them in all decisions affecting their children’s education and learning.
Ways to help your child:
- Reading with your child
- Asking questions about their learning
- Helping out in schools as a volunteer
- Supporting Homework
