Description

The Power of Engagement: raising outcomes by listening to teachers, children and parents

When teachers have a say in school decision-making, this leads to a better learning environment for students, which in turn raises attainment - Richard Kahlenberg

When young people are involved in decisions about their learning they become more motivated, develop a more positive attitude and this helps raise outcomes - Professor Jean Rudduck

When parents are engaged in their child's learning it is equivalent to adding 2-3 years to that child's education - Professor John Hattie

In building effective schools it is crucial therefore that senior leaders and governors listen to these key voices and bring them together to build a common sense of purpose. Valuing teachers as professionals, involving students as active participants in their education and treating parents as genuine partners helps to create a strong and resilient school community that is best placed to meet the needs of the community it exists to serve.

Join Fiona Carnie and colleagues at this workshop to explore ways of encouraging the active participation of students, teachers and parents in building a collaborative and forward-facing learning community. Drawing on research, inspirational practice and school transformation resources, discuss how to build a future for your school that makes the most of the talent and commitment of your school community. Hear inspiring case studies from the UK and further afield where listening and responding to the views of these key groups has increased well-being and improved outcomes for all.

This workshop is for senior leaders, teachers and governors in both primary and secondary settings.

Fiona Carnie is an educationalist and writer who has worked in a range of education settings. Her focus is on building the voice and participation of teachers, students and parents to create inclusive, equitable and ethical schools.
