Engaging families in learning – A thematic inspection of family learning
Through our national thematic reports HM Inspectors of Education share their professional view on particular aspects of education.
This report explores the impact of schools and other settings working with families to improve learning and achievement. It identifies the key features of highly-effective practice in engaging families in learning and provides examples of quality family learning which are helping to secure better outcomes for children and young people. The case studies of practice in the report, captured before Covid-19, have been revisited to see how the identified settings and services have engaged families in learning during educational recovery.
As well as the thematic inspection report, there is a summary powerpoint available to download. We have prepared two sketchnotes as part of this report. The first identifying aspects of family learning, parental involvement, parental engagement and learning at home. The second shares the key features of high-quality family learning.
