Generic evidence l.jpg
Generic evidence celebrate with parents how much 'impact' we are making on children's learning by working together in partnership

  • 1. The school should demonstrate its strategic commitment to and development of work with families by highlighting the relevant sections of its School Plan

  • 2. The school should detail the success criteria that it uses to gauge whether its work with families is successful or not and give some idea of its current assessment of its progress.

  • 3. The school should demonstrate the processes it has introduced so as to ensure that work with families is a ‘whole school’ approach rather than being fragmented and not wholly effective across all the school’s activities.

  • 4. The school should demonstrate how it strives to ensure that all families and all parents are included in its work, not only those easiest to engage with and to make contact with.

  • 5. The school should summarise those extended activities that enhance its work with families and specify those partner agencies that contribute to this aspect of the work.

Activity specific evidence l.jpg
Activity specific evidence that all families and all parents are included in its work, not only those easiest to engage with and to make contact with.

The school should provide for each of the 25 activities:

  • the appropriate evidence of the success of the activity, and

  • an assessment of its impact on children and young people, families and the school.

    Evidence is acceptable in a variety of different forms: narrative, pupil’s work, photographs and video, testimonials, school policies and records, newspaper cuttings, and so on. Focus on what most clearly demonstrates effective practice and use that material.
