Department for Children, Schools and Families The Childrens Plan Building brighter futures Presented to Parliament by the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families by Command of Her Majesty December 2007 Parental engagement 23. Parents we consulted over the last six months all said they wanted to be more involved in their childrens education. And schools see the benefits of greater engagement with parents...We know from schools around the country thatif families are going to be involved really effectively, they need a good two way flow of information-a channel which is more efficient and more frequent than a once a year written report, or a letter home when there is a problem or a cause for celebration. Jim Knight, minister of state for schools and learners at the Bett show,January 2008 What is government saying? 24. What is it that makes a difference? Afathers interestin a childs schooling is strongly linked to educational outcomes for the child; ( Hobcraft. CASE briefing Nov 1998) It is theat-home relationships and modelling of aspirationswhich play the major part in impact on school outcomes. ( Desforges 2003 ) Very high parental interest is associated with better exam resultsthan for children whose parents show no interest ( NCDS 1999 ) Its what parents do rather than who they are that counts Pupilsachievementin the schoolswhere the impact of parental involvement was [judged to be] outstanding had clearly improved .(Ofsted 2007) They [parents] should be supported providing the results of periodic assessments for parents in an easy to understand format, such as using traffic lights to indicate childrens understanding of key concepts( 2020 Vision: recommendations ) 25. Learner Parent School Access from Home Learner access Access to information 26. Access Parents overall: 90% (83% Broadband) Ofcom (2008): Trend indicator:Internet access for2 parent households 2001 69% 2004 78% 2006 92% (DCSF/BRMB 2007) 27. Three quarters of a million households with children lack an ICTdevice and even more homes lack high quality connectivity Lower income households are most likely to lack home accessreducing opportunities to support parental engagementand compounds social exclusion Schools find it to difficult to buildon existing ownership andaccess Evidence demonstrates thatpenetration is slowing The digital divide is notreducing fast enough. The challenge - narrowing the gap 28. Learner Parent School Access to information Access from Home Learner access 29. Young people: internet use rises at ages 10 and 13 30. 84%of UK young people play computer games at least once a fortnight The challenge - narrowing the gap 31. 72%of UK teachersnever play computer games The challenge - narrowing the gap 32. Learner Parent School Access from Home Learner access Access to information 33. The principles: Extending what is already good practice Making best use of what is already in place and availableEfficient and effective practice (enter once, use many times) Not a duplication or replacement of the annual report Developing sustainable approaches and processes(including assessment and recording) The rationale Is to improve the quality of dialogue between schools, learners and parents to support the immediate, emerging and developing needs of learners. Learner Parent School 34. Learner Parent School 35. What can we expect? The expectation is that by September 2010 all secondary schools will need tooffer parents the opportunity for secure online access to learner informationwherever they are and whenever they want and that primary schools must also meet the online requirement by 2012. Secondary schools should already be looking at how they can improve their practice and sharing that learning with others, they are encouraged to engage with this now and not to wait until the 2010 deadline arrives.Many primary schools are already active and developing good practice, they too need not wait until the target date they can already be benefiting from the move towards online reporting and start supporting the improvement dialogue right away. 36.
