Parentkind can help your school build effective home-school partnerships. We know from research that effective parental participation can have a positive impact on a child’s:
We offer a package of workshops tailored specifically to leaders, to support with the challenging nature of engaging parents, honing your leadership skills and ultimately making headway on school improvement.
Our comprehensive programme starts with a CPD accredited foundation workshop providing you, as leaders, with everything you need to know about parental engagement, and a takeaway tailored strategy to put what you have learnt into action across your whole school or academy. The second step is our series of Masterclasses to help you overcome the specific barriers you face when engaging parents, or developing an effective Parent Council as a tool for channelling positive parent voice.
Parentkind’s training programme is now CPD (Continuing Professional Development) accredited! This means that our workshops will now count towards your career development; even more reason to train with Parentkind. We can provide you with new and useful skills to help support your professional growth as school leaders.
Our new trainers range from former head teachers and Ofsted inspectors, to parental engagement champions and education consultants. They all bring their own wealth of experience and qualifications to the workshops, which help your individual school needs.
The network of associate trainers are from all over England, which means they understand the challenges faced by schools in different regions, and can address the ways in which your school can engage with parents. Meet our trainers here.
