Did you know that being a parent-friendly school improves staff retention and academic achievement, as well as reduces absenteeism?
Looking to the future, parental participation has more power than ever to make a huge improvement to a child’s educational experience and attainment and yet remains an under-utilised resource. In fact, only 8% of teachers report on taking CPD on parental engagement.bbc
Parentkind is the only school training provider that is the authority on parents. We empower you to build effective parent-school relationships with evidence-based training that improves all schools for teachers, children and parents. We do this through our Blueprint for Parent-Friendly Schools that is adaptable to your school’s needs.
In line with the Blueprint for Parent-Friendly Schools (click here for the Blueprint in Welsh), our online workshops and masterclasses have been developed for senior leaders and teachers, providing practical tools, techniques and actions that you can embed to cultivate an environment that nurtures parental involvement in all areas of their child’s education.
