Parents, carers and families are by far the most important influences in a child’s life. Their support can play a vital role at all stages of education.

Parents who take on a supportive role in their children’s learning make a difference in improving achievement and behaviour.  The active involvement of parents can help promote a learning community in which children and young people can engage positively with practitioners and their peers.
