About the Webinar

Webinar Runtime: 55 Minutes

This webinar will provide school leaders, subject leads and teachers with practical strategies and methods of communication to help engage parents and students in home learning.

With schools remaining partially closed until further notice, there is a greater onus on teachers to continue children’s learning whilst they are at home. This places a greater emphasis on parental engagement and it’s essential that communication between the school and homes is clear, realistic and empathetic to children’s needs.

In this webinar, former headteacher and highly experienced education expert, Chris McShane, explores how schools can positively engage students when tasking them with work at home and the benefits of applying a more comprehensive communication strategy with parents.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the importance of effective communication techniques, both with students and parents, in eliciting positive engagement

  • Devising a communication strategy that is empathetic, supportive and builds trust with pupils and parents.

  • Recognising the needs of different children and acknowledging different levels of parental involvement

  • Identifying realistic expectations, managing concerns and avoiding common mistakes

  • Developing and implementing a more tailored approach towards short-term and more long-term communication
