About the Webinar

This webinar will provide senior leaders, subject leads and teachers with practical advice and guidance on working with parents and carers to support children’s catch-up learning.

As pupils return to school, effective communication with parents and carers is essential to ensure children feel they have the level of support they need, both at school and at home. It’s important that schools offer help and guidance to parents and carers around different aspects of children’s learning, including advice to reinforce classroom teaching which will help pupils to progress and develop.

In this webinar, education expert and leadership and management trainer, Michelle Howard, will explore how schools can develop a communication strategy that provides parents and carers with the support they need and will help to encourage increased attendance at school and engagement with catch-up learning.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the current context and developing a communication strategy with parents and carers.

  • Developing catch-up strategies that include parents and carers and supporting families who are most disadvantaged.
