The gulf between communicating with the parents of our students seems to widen as children progress through their school life, but persisting with the challenge of continuing communications can be one of the most effective ways of keeping students and parents involved with the educational journey. With the mounting pressures of life on parents, teachers and students, it is easy to let communicating and engaging with parents slip, yet
parental engagement with children’s learning is the best lever we have to raise achievement in schools.
In their new book, Janet Goodall and Kathryn Weston explore 100 evidence-based ideas to help primary teachers engage parents in their children’s learning. 100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Engaging Parents 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. This book offers a clear, concise and easy-to-use format that takes into account how busy schools and teachers truly are!
Split into seven distinct sections, the book explores issues such as being approachable, communication styles and sustainable practice, in a supportive and digestible manner for the reader.
