Research and evidence base
Research shows that engaging parents and carers in their child’s education at school leads to better educational and wellbeing outcomes.
We reviewed over 80 policies, research papers, resources, publications, toolkits and strategies for this space from other states of Australia, and other countries, showing the link between parent and carer engagement and their child’s educational and wellbeing outcomes.
The Parent and Carer engagement framework brings together findings from a comprehensive secondary research review and primary research undertaken with parents and carers.
Listed below is a small selection of helpful resources from our research pointing to the value of parent and carer engagement.
