Event description

Description


"The evidence is consistent, positive and convincing: families have a major influence on children's achievement." Harvard Graduate School of Education (2015)

This talk draws together the best available research evidence on the role that parents and families can have on children’s academic attainment and ability to thrive at primary school.

Those who attend will:

  • Understand clearly that what parents do at home can markedly affect their child's academic progress.

  • Learn how to develop a positive 'family mindset' towards children’s well-being and learning.

Who is the talk for?

Any parent of a child under 12 who wishes to understand what they can be doing to fully support their child's academic progress at school.
