About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 1 hour 6 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders and governors of independent senior schools with advice and practical guidance on establishing constructive dialogue with parents and carers to manage expectations of the school and maintain positive relationships.

It is widely accepted that the involvement of parents and carers in pupils’ education can significantly enhance academic attainment. However, it is important that schools strike a balance, at the same time encouraging positive parental engagement whilst inspiring trust in and respect for the professional expertise of their staff.

In this webinar, Stephen Burnage, expert practitioner, consultant and trainer with over 25 years' experience in teaching and leading schools, explains how schools can develop constructive dialogue with parents and carers to the satisfaction of all concerned.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how to encourage constructive communication with parents and carers whilst maintaining professional boundaries, in the best interest of all parties.

  • Appreciating the value of parental engagement in improving academic attainment, and the importance of ongoing, two-way communication with the school.

  • Recognising the role of technology in facilitating instant communication and the importance of managing parental expectations with regard to responsiveness.

  • Being able to establish a whole-school approach to parental engagement which establishes processes for communication and ranks priorities.

  • Understanding how to resolve conflict so that positive relationships can be restored, putting the best interest of the pupil at the heart of all decisions.
