Resources for schools

The following resources support effective practice in community consultation.

Working in partnership

  • The Family-School Partnerships Framework was developed by the Australian Government Department of Education & Training. It provides a set of principles to guide families and schools in developing partnerships, and identifies seven key dimensions of effective family-school partnerships. The framework recognises that many positive developments and innovations are already occurring in schools and that a one-size-fits-all approach to partnerships is not feasible.
  • MindMatters mental health framework informs the development of a whole school mental health strategy that’s right for your students and school community. MindMatters have developed a series of online modules and videos – component 3 helps schools to support parents and families.
  • Partnerships for schools, businesses and communities – developed by the Australian Government Department of Education & Training. The guiding principles support partnerships between schools, business and communities to improve outcomes for young people.
