Parents asked to come forward for consultations regarding ward’s education

 Department of Education’s Parent and Carers Engagement Framework has asked parents, carers and educators to take part in consultations opening today.

The Parent and Carer Engagement Framework will outline how the education sector can work more closely with parents and carers to improve student outcomes.

Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said that students perform better at school when their families are engaged in their education.

“The pandemic has shown us that there are always new ways for parents to engage in their child’s education,” Ms Mitchell said.

“This survey gives parents a chance to tell us what they think the best ways are for their school to communicate with them and what we can improve on.

“Each family and school context is unique, so it’s important for us to hear from a diversity of voices and families about what high-quality engagement means for them.”

The Department will be leveraging the survey’s insights and input from school communities to develop the evidence-based framework.

The new framework will help parents and carers to better understand their rights, responsibilities and choices in the education system and have access to timely information about their child’s learning, development and wellbeing.
