Parent and carer engagement

Improving achievement for all children

Parent and carer engagement is the most changeable factor in a child’s achievement. By improving engagement, schools can improve attainment, progress, attendance, behaviour, wellbeing and aspirations.

Parent and carer engagement toolkit

We have developed a toolkit to support schools and settings. Headteachers and senior leaders can use this to review their own approach to engagement. 

The toolkit takes you through various steps including:

  • Audit and data gathering
  • Identifying priorities
  • Implementing your plan

Further support

Our system leader for parent and carer engagement will be running webinars, CPD sessions and networking events. There will be opportunities to share challenges, solutions and best practice too. 

Details will be available shortly.
