Summary

How can we create effective partnerships between home, school and the community? How can the relationships and communication between families and school be strengthened? How can families help schools to improve behaviour in their children, both at home and at school? It has been proven time and time again, that parents who are actively involved in their child's learning are the ones who make the most progress socially and academically. This highly practical book shows schools and organisations how to create effective partnerships with families and the community in a fun, exciting and sustainable way. Using a tried and tested framework that has been successfully implemented throughout a wide variety of very different schools and settings, '¬ÜFamily Values'¬" is a scheme which engages and empowers families to work in close collaboration with schools and organisations, and results in long term improvements in behaviour, communication, pupil achievement and relationships. Pupils become more academically diligent, the school assumes a calmer, more peaceful ambience, better pupil-teacher relationships are forged, pupil and teacher wellbeing improves and parents are more engaged with the school. The author'¬"s award-winning '¬ÜFamily Values'¬" scheme is underpinned by theoretical principles, and they show here how it has been successfully put into practice through case studies in real school settings. The book explores how the scheme promotes social, emotional and family system theories, and as it makes links effectively to SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning), the scheme compliments existing personal and social education programmes in all schools.
