Parental Involvement

Edujam - 22nd November 2007

“At-home parental involvement clearly and consistently has significant effects on pupil achievement … which far outweigh other forms of involvement.”
Charles Desforges, ‘The Impact of Parental Involvement on Pupil Achievement’.

Research into parental involvement in pupils achievement has shown that it has a significant impact, especially at home.

· Children of parents who take an active interest in their schooling make greater progress than other children.
· Gains in pupil achievement that stem from parental involvement programmes tend to be permanent.
· In schools with matched intakes, those with strong parental partnerships do best - they consistently have fewer problems related to pupil behaviour and their pupils' achievements are better.
· Family influences have a more powerful effect on children's achievements than either school or neighbourhood factors.
