Effective Parental Engagement for Student Learning online course on School Education Gateway-Teacher Academy
Parents and families have the most direct and lasting impact on children’s learning and development. A stimulating home environment that encourages learning as well as parental engagement in school activities are crucial for a child’s cognitive, social and emotional development. Building family-school partnerships and engaging parents as learning partners from the early years is therefore essential to improving children’s and young people’s development. Research shows that a multidisciplinary approach, with involvement of parents, children, teachers and professionals from the local community is key to resolving behavioural problems of school children.
