Practitioner and family views sought for early research in a new Campaign for Learning and FEA project

Campaign for Learning is working on a project with the Fair Education Alliance to raise children’s learning outcomes through parental engagement.

Families have a larger impact on children's learning outcomes than schools. However, families often do not recognise the vital importance of their role and may not believe that they can support learning. This problem is particularly acute in families experiencing socioeconomic disadvantage.

How can you get involved?

Do you work with families or schools? Miranda at Campaign for Learning is looking to speak with practitioners working across family learning, those who work directly or indirectly with families, to gain an understanding of what works and what doesn’t work in catalysing parental engagement, and to learn from your experiences.

Do you know family adults who might be interested in filling out a survey?

Miranda is also looking for a handful of parents or carers with children – either in school or starting school in the future – or both – to take part in a pilot looking at how they feel about learning. She has an initial survey as part of the pilot. She can call the parent, arrange a Zoom or Teams call, or you can find a digital survey link below to send to parents and carers. If you would like to get in touch, please email her on [email protected]

If you would like to send the survey directly to family adults you work with, please share this link:
