Welcome to the parental engagement community

"Exploiting technologies to support parental engagement, including online reporting"


The evidence is clear that parents can have a greater impact upon their child's education than schools do. In the 21st century schools are transforming to take advantage of the benefits that technology offers in communicating between home and school to both inform and involve parents in their children's learning and life at school.


This space is where you can discuss all things related to parental engagement. It is an opportunity to share your experiences, give advice and explore new ideas.
