How Do We Build Effective Parent-School Partnerships in Inclusive Schools?

What strategies do we use to encourage parental engagement at Limes Farm Junior School?

Our approach identifies four key success strategies designed to support parents, so that they have the opportunity, skills and tools to work together with staff and contribute fully to the success of their child at Limes Farm Junior School;

1. School Climate — we will foster and sustain a positive, welcoming school climate in which all parent perspectives are encouraged, valued and heard.

2. Eliminating Barriers — we will aim to identify and remove barriers to parent engagement that may prevent some parents from fully participating in their children’s learning, and to reflect the diversity of our students and communities.

3. Support for Parents — we will provide parents with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to support student learning at home and at school.

4. School Community Involvement — we will foster good relations between different partners through regular social events to build the community.

What is parental engagement?
At Limes Farm Junior School, we recognise many different forms of parental engagement, and believe that each is an important contributor to a child’s success at school.

Here are some key examples: 

1. Attend Parent Meetings, which is a great opportunity to exchange perspectives, and to ensure parental views are communicated appropriately.

2. Providing a positive learning environment at home, actively working with children to support what they are learning in school, and making learning an important part of the day.

3. Having productive conversations with teachers so that there is clear communication between the school and at home.

4. Becoming involved in other school activities, and volunteering to help with school events, trips and other activities.
