School Effectiveness Cornwall - Parent Carer Engagement Framework

School Effectiveness Cornwall - Parent Carer Engagement Framework


Effective parental engagement is a crucial ingredient in both academic and social success, especially for our most vulnerable pupils. Cornwall Council’s Together for Families Directorate, supported by Parent Carer Cornwall, have developed a framework and toolkit to promote the partnership between pupils, parents, and school to help create a culture of mutual collaboration to support all learners to succeed.

The Framework

This resource is designed to be a working document that supports education settings in the development of a parent carer engagement strategy and to be central to the work they do to raise aspirations and achievement. The resource includes: -

· A framework based on principles and criteria for building the education setting’s approach, structured around seven themes.

· Descriptors for what all education settings should be doing as well as what successful schools do – aiming to provide a direction of travel for future work.

· A ‘selection box’ of practical resources and references that education settings can select from to support meeting the identified principles.
