Parental engagement with children’s learning is the best lever we have to raise achievement in schools. However, there is a gap between what is known from the research and actual practice at the chalkface in schools. Parents are still often seen as ‘helping’ the school, rather than having a direct role in their children’s learning. Bringing together one of the main researchers in the field and an educational consultant, this book utilises their experience to present 100 evidence-based ideas to help primary teachers engage parents in their children’s learning.

This book presents ideas for supporting the most effective forms of parental engagement, which are grounded in both the literature in the field and practical experience of working with schools and families.
