Involve Parents

What parents do with their children at home is much more significant than any other factor open to educational influence.

Desforges and Abouchaar, 2003

So why not make parent engagement with schoolwork as easy as possible?

We know parents – and they’re telling us they want to know more about what their children are learning at school, and why. What goes on in the classroom is a mystery to so many parents – so how can you expect them to support their children’s’ learning once they’re home?

We know it’s easier said than done. Teachers often feel like they’re being pulled in a hundred directions, and there’s no time to sit down with teachers and say: “here’s what we’re learning, and why. Here’s what you can do to build on this at home.”

So, we developed the Parent Portal.

It’s designed to help you:

Have a look at the portal itself, and see how it can help engage parents at your school. There’s plenty of curriculum help for parents, resources to help them get involved with schoolwork, and more:

By involving parents in education, you give them the tools to boost their children’s learning at home, too. This means: 

  • Children loving what they learn and being more engaged in the classroom.
  • Better parent support with homework and tests.
  • More effective action if a child is struggling in the classroom.
  • Parents are better able to provide educational activities at home.
  • Overall improvement in grades and pupil satisfaction.

Setting up the parent portal couldn’t be easier. It’s connected to your school’s MIS system, meaning all the data you need is in the system from the get-go. All you need to do is start sharing, decide what information you want parents to access, and they’ll have all they need to get involved with their child’s learning.
