Engaging Parents: Improving Educational Outcomes

Effective parental engagement is a crucial ingredient in both academic and social success, especially for our most vulnerable pupils highlighted in the Governments recent education white paper ‘Opportunity for All’. Cornwall Council’s Together for Families Directorate have developed a Framework and Toolkit to promote the partnership between pupils, parents and school to help to create a culture of mutual collaboration in order to support all learners to succeed. This was supported by Cornwall’s Parent Carer Forum. Over the past ten months 14 education settings from the Duchy have piloted the Framework and will be sharing their case studies at the conference

Join the SEC Curriculum Advisors, two nationally recognised parental engagement champions and authors of the book ‘The Four Pillars of Parental Engagement’, many of the pilot education settings who have led case studies and hear about the latest developments and practical strategies in building and sustaining impactful parental engagement. The conference will officially launch the Framework and Toolkit which will be available to all educational settings across Cornwall.
