Parents are children’s prime educators and have a huge influence on their children’s educational, social and emotional development. Parental involvement is therefore about highlighting the crucial roles that the key partners –parents and school- have to play and working in partnership to help the child. To help re-enforce this message we have developed a range of resource materials for school and parents:   

ParentsCentre Portal: - is for all parents and carers who want to help their child or children to learn. It provides parents with information on education and encourages them to get more involved in their children’s education. 

Help your child to learn series: are leaflets to support parents. They include advice on making the most of parents’ evenings, getting the most from school reports, making the most of time with your child.  

Involving Parents, Raising Achievement: this booklet is about helping parents and schools to help children fulfil their potential.  

Also available on line:

The Impact of Parental Involvement in Children’s Education: this is research evidence on parental involvement, highlighting the importance of the involvement of parents in their children’s education.
