    • What we do Exerpts from DfE report on best practices in parental engagement 2011 “Parental Engagement with children’s learning is effectively supported when parents receive clear, specific and targeted information from schools”“More parents now believe that they have a responsibility for their children’s education at a time when confidence to help with homework is declining. This presents schools with an opportunity to support parents by improving school-home links” “Improving Home-School links can lead to improvements in the completion of homework, learning behaviours and improved attendance” “ICT can contribute to improved parental engagement by: providing a convenient means for parents to access up-to-date information about their child’s learning and life at school” © Scholabo Ltd 2011
