The most widely used resource for helping teachers in the classroom will now be available as a quick guide for parents.

The What Works Best resource has been very successful helping teachers bring the best teaching practices into their classrooms.

The “What Works Best” resources sit on the parent and carer hub, providing information for parents and carers about effective teaching practices and how these can be supported at home.

Parents are encouraged to access the hub of valuable online resources, created by experts at NSW Education, to help them support their children’s education.

Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning, Sarah Mitchell, said that our children’s learning is a partnership, and these resources can benefit both parents and students.

“Knowing how your child is learning at school is a good way for parents to engage with their education,” Ms Mitchell said.

“Homes should be supportive places for learning. Research shows that supporting what is happening in the classroom at home lifts education outcomes for students.”

“NSW Public Schools are committed to ensuring that children are taught based on what we know makes the biggest difference to their education.”

Ms Mitchell said through the parent and carer hub, families will have access to information including learning and wellbeing resources, advice, study skills, a quick guide glossary, homework help, learning from home tools, and support for additional needs.

“We’re focused on improving student outcomes in NSW and we know this can be done with effective partnerships between our parent and carers, and teachers in our schools,” Ms Mitchell said.
