Engaging parents, carers and families

Working with families can add strength and depth. It makes approaches and specific interventions much more effective.

Families can help to reinforce the messages of the school. You can also help parents and carers develop their own parenting skills and attitudes. 

This may be informal, through conversation with parents and carers, or formal through:

  • presentations at parents’ evenings
  • printed information
  • parenting education courses
  • designated family link workers
