The Engaging Parents Toolkit aims to help you to raise achievement in school through better communication with parents, by focusing on the type of parental involvement that has been proven to impact on pupil achievement the most; talking at home Written by Julie McGrane Getting you started on building relationships with parents The Engaging Parents Toolkit is designed to help you start conversations with the parents of your students and your staff to make a difference to pupil attainment. The toolkit comes in 5 sections which are specifically designed to help you engage with parents in a way that will have a positive impact on students. The sections cover areas such as: *What is known about parental involvement *Templates for promoting talk about learning *National policy and school priorities Easy to use In this toolkit you will find a range of tools designed to help you engage with parents in a way that will have a positive impact on students. There is no need to read this document in the order presented here. The navigation tool provided in the toolkit will help you to use it however you see fit for your school.

It will help you to tackle the most urgent issues regarding parental involvement in your school. Read on for a summary of what is included in each section: SECTION 1: What do we know about parental involvement (Prof. Charles Desforges) This provides you with a summary of the latest evidence about parental involvement. It can be copied and given to SLTs, governors, staff and parents to read or you can use the tools provided elsewhere in the toolkit to share this evidence. SECTION 2: Tools for starting conversations This provides you with a range of tools for starting conversations with staff and parents. They can be used as starter activities for events you already run or as a sequence of activities for new forms of engagement. Either way they help you build a relationship around shared priorities which contribute to helping young people succeed. SECTION 3: Templates for promoting talk about learning This provides you with a range of exemplar 'templates' designed to encourage parents, students and school to talk about learning. They can be used to help you review the contribution that processes such as parents' evenings, mentoring days and homework diaries make to learning.

This section also exemplifies how templates can be used to encourage 'at home' talk. You will also find a focus on fathers here. SECTION 4: Enquiring parents This provides you with a description and explanation of the potential benefits of engaging parents in enquiry. In addition, it provides tools to get you going and accounts from practice so you can learn from the experience of others. This can be used in two ways. Firstly, it can include parents in the process of gathering parental views (useful for your self-evaluation form). Secondly, it explores how enquiry might be used to support/challenge specific groups of parents. It also considers how you could use student enquiry to promote 'at home' talk and bridge the gap between home and school. SECTION 5: National policy and school priorities (Dr. David Leat) This provides a summary of aspects of policy and practice with which you will be wrestling in school and explores where parental involvement could connect and add value. Use it to build shared understanding among staff and governors.
