Introduction

Research indicates when schools and families work together,
children do better, stay in school longer, are more engaged
with their school work, go to school more regularly,
behave better, and have better social skills.

This parent partnership strategy outlines how parents and carers,
educators and our community can work together to ensure
that every parent can play a positive role in their child’s
learning, and school community.

Our Vision

A school community of participation and engagement where all families have
a sense of belonging. Where families feel known and loved. Where children
thrive in a connected, supported and inspiring environment.
