Family School Partnership Award
03 Jul 2020
Do you want to improve the way your school works in partnership with families to deliver better outcomes for pupils?
Have recent lockdown restrictions and reduced contact with families made you want to reassess your strategy for engaging successfully with all parents?
Would you like to celebrate all the positive work you already do to support families and share good practice?
Find out how by registering your interest in the Family School Partnership Award (FSPA) 2020-21 by emailing or calling Libby on the contact details below to find out more. We’d love to talk to you about the benefits of taking part for your school.
Launch events are planned for autumn 2020 and more information will be circulated to interested schools in September.
About the FSPA
The FSPA supports schools to review their whole school approach to working with families in the widest sense, identify areas where they would like to see positive change and put in place actions to effect this change. The school partnerships and enrichment team have been awarded funding from John Lyons Charity to enable us to offer this award and the comprehensive training and support package FREE to schools in Ealing, Harrow and Brent
The Family Partnership model
The Family Partnership model aligns the different aspects of schools' work with parents and families under five key themes, with an overarching theme of monitoring and evaluation cutting across all areas:
- Theme 1: Fostering effective family school partnerships
- Theme 2: Communicating and consulting effectively
- Theme 3: Enabling parental engagement in learning
- Theme 4: Empowering parents and carers to develop their own skills
- Theme 5: Supporting successful transitions.
The process will support schools to review their provision from the view point of senior leaders, teaching staff, support staff, governors and parents. Take a look at the attached Celebration booklet (see download) to find out more.
“I would thoroughly recommend to other schools participating in the FSPA process. It is extremely well structured and supported and can be hugely beneficial to both the school and parents.“
“We would definitely tell other schools how positive the process has been; it has provided opportunities to meet with staff from other schools and discuss the similarities in our struggles with parental engagement and effective ways they have been tackled”.
