Overview

Course overview

Parents and carers play a crucial role in children’s development. Positive relationships with them are at the heart of a successful primary school. Support and engagement from home is vital if pupils are to reach their full potential. And of course, parents and carers have a specific role to play when it comes to addressing concerns about poor attendance, disruptive behaviour, or social and emotional development. So how can you boost engagement and build effective relationships to give the children in your care the best possible chance of extracting all the learning and opportunity from their primary school experience?
