Working with Parents is your essential resource for developing strong home-school relations in primary schools.
“It gives good strategies to help in a wide range of situations that sometimes can be difficult to deal with – I find it very useful.”
Gaynor Horsfield, Home-school Partnership Officer, Foxfield Primary School
Specifically aimed at primary headteachers or classteachers who are responsible for the home-school relationship, it provides practical help to bring parents, children and teachers together, developing those positive attitudes that are crucial to effective learning.
Written with your needs in mind, the Working with Parents file is designed to be immediately accessible, instantly useful and easily understandable. It comes in an A4 loose-leaf and easily photocopiable format to ensure that you can pass resources on to the people who need them – teachers, parents and pupils.
Published three times a year, Working with Parents helps you by providing:
Information for teachers – practical ideas and resources for building home-school relationships
Clear information for parents – on a wide range of issues such as how children learn and how parents can help at home and at school
Carefully written homework activities – linked to key learning objectives; every term the homework section gives you over 20 pages of homework that do not require marking every term.
This file is an invaluable resource, because each issue will:
Fully support teachers, pupils and parents: copy articles for your colleagues, worksheets for your pupils and advice and handouts for parents
Reduce the time you spend planning and researching: with each issue you’ll get resources that can be put straight to use
Photocopy and re-use all materials: each issue comes in an A4 easily photocopiable format. You are free to photocopy and re-use all resources as many times as you need for use within your school.
“The folder contains a wealth of information for teachers, TA’s and support staff such as myself. The information is presented in article form and also offers practitioners examples of activities and ideas for inspiration on educating children but also family learning. This has been most useful for me as a Family Mentor.”
Ann Edwards, Family Mentor, Ten Schools United
