The parent-school relationship is essential for a thriving community, with research consistently finding that teacher and family relationships are important for young people’s social and emotional wellbeing and academic achievement (Desforges & Aboucher, 2003).
The key to building successful relationships starts, and ends, with good communication.
It’s so important, modern education establishments – from preschools to universities are building feedback loops to encourage and ensure good levels of communication and transparency.
Once the relationship of trust is built between parents and the school, honest and constructive feedback becomes more forthcoming, which ultimately improves school practices and enhances the community.
