Family school partnership award (FSPA) 2022-23 launch event

22 Jun 2022

  • Do you want to improve the way your school works in partnership with families to deliver better outcomes for pupils?
  • Have COVID restrictions and reduced contact with families made you want to reassess your stratgey 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?

The Family School Partnership Award (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.

Come along to the launch event to find out more.

Date and time: 14 July 2022, 9.30-10.30am via Microsoft Teams

About the launch event

We will:

The family partnership model

The family partnership model aligns the different aspects of schools’ work with parents and families under 5 Key Themes, with an overarching theme of monitoring and evaluation cutting across all areas:

  • Theme 1: Fostering effective family-school partnerships
  • Theme 2: Communicating & 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.

"We would encourage all schools to take part in the FSPA award. We have really enjoyed it and through regular meetings with the FSP we have been able to track our progress at each stage [both] tangible results (policy, training package) and non-tangible results (amazing experiences and interactions with our parents) – these we will particularly cherish."

"The FSP have really facilitated this process making it very smooth and achievable. The framework has led to enlightening moments where we have touched on/learnt things, we would not have considered otherwise."

“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”.
