The importance of parental engagement
Parents are key to their child’s success in life. For every child to fulfil their potential they must be supported effectively at home yet as teachers we can feel powerless to influence this.
In partnership with schools, our platform motivates and empowers over 20,000 parents to engage in their children’s learning.
The Learning with Parents platform is provided by Learning with Parents, a registered charity (CIO). We lead the Parental Engagement Forum, partnering with other leading organisations to address educational inequality through effective parental engagement in disadvantaged communities.
