Description

HARNESSING PARENT POWER: 5 KEY STRATEGIES 

Half-day workshop for senior leaders, governors, teachers, parent support workers, parents and local authority advisers

with Fiona Carnie

When parents are involved in their children’s education children do better on a range of measures. Parental involvement is thus a key lever for school improvement - and yet many schools struggle to engage parents.  

This workshop will explore a range of strategies that schools can use to develop an effective and valuable partnership with parents in order to raise attainment. The barriers that prevent parental participation will also be discussed with suggestions as to how these can be addressed.

 The session will cover: 

  • Improving home/school communication
  • Gaining parental support for learning
  • Working with parents to improve behaviour
  • Reaching out to disengaged families
  • Listening and responding to parents’ views

This is an interactive session with opportunities for participants to share ideas and learn from each other. New ideas for engaging parents will be discussed and participants will leave with an action plan for building parent participation at their school.

 Fiona Carnie has extensive experience of working with primary and secondary schools to develop strategies to involve parents. She has written widely on this theme, most recently in the Parent Participation Handbook (2011) and Harnessing Parent Power (2013), both published by Optimus.
