Working Together

When parents are involved in their child's education, children do better on a wide range of measures.

Children can achieve well at school when their family and friends take an interest in their education. Getting involved in your child’s education, even in the simplest way, shows that you care about their school life. Often, the more supported a child feels at home, the more effectively they will learn at school. Whatever your lifestyle, or family situation, it is never too soon (or too late) to start helping a child develop a positive attitude towards learning.

Research shows that some of these positive effects include:

  • Better behaviour
  • More confidence and greater self-esteem
  • Higher attendance rates
  • A lower risk of exclusion
  • More enthusiasm about learning
  • Better results

When schools and parents work together, they have a positive impact on attainment and student well-being. This is why it is so important that schools work in partnership with their parents, from a child’s first day at school right through to when they leave.
