About the workshop
Children do better across a range of measures when their parents are involved in their education. Yet many schools struggle to engage parents, particularly those they most want to reach. This workshop will help those who feel they've tried everything but are still battling to engage "harder to reach" parents.
Join this half day workshop to hear imaginative and powerful ideas on:
- Reaching out to disengaged families to build parental support for learning.
- Overcoming the barriers to parental involvement
- Revamping your school ethos
- Encouraging positive behaviour
- Training your staff to work effectively with parents.
Who is this Parent Councils UK course designed for?
- Heads and senior leaders
- Pastoral support and family liaison teams
- Other staff with responsibility for parental involvement
- Local authority advisers
