This package will benefit schools that want to:

  • Engage with ALL parents and carers to maximise children’s learning potential.
  • Support parents and carers to better understand how they can help their child with learning at home.
  • Utilise the expertise of the team to increase engagement with parents and carers who may find working with schools difficult.

96% of parents attending workshops led by the team said they had increased their knowledge and confidence in the topic area.

The School Partnerships and Enrichment Team has extensive experience working across a range of schools to increase the impact of parental engagement. We use tried and tested techniques to maximise engagement, providing quality, friendly and professional workshops that leave parents feeling confident and empowered to better support their child.
