This episode discusses the tenets of effective parent/carer engagement work for secondary schools, offering advice, tips, ideas and best practice for building effective relationships.

Our expert panel discusses a parental engagement timeline – when this work should begin, how it can be sustained, and what forms this might take.

We also tackle how to handle conflict with parents, how to engage with “hard-to-reach” parents and community out-reach. We consider how parental engagement has changed during the pandemic, what practices/innovations are here to stay and how technology is helping.

Other topics include the future of parents’ evenings – online and face-to-face – the importance of positive communication with parents and how this can be done effectively, including proactive communication plans, building connections, and how to operate parental reporting.
