Masterclass: Whole School Approach

Would you like to take a more proactive and strategic approach to parental participation? Our masterclass will support you and your school to cultivate more successful parent-school relationships, to build trust and raise aspirations across the whole school.

Why book this masterclass?

Led by our highly experienced trainers, the ‘Whole School Approach to Parental Participation’ masterclass will empower you to devise and implement effective parental participation strategies in your school. We'll look at what's right for your school and how you can build an ongoing and positive partnership with parents. A range of case studies will be presented and you will be supported to develop an effective action plan for your own school.

Our masterclass builds on the knowledge gained in our introductory online workshop and is ideal for those that have already joined us for our workshop, or for schools that are already implementing parental participation approaches.
