Parents and teachers, working together

Being a teacher myself, I have known for a long time that children make the best progress at school when teachers and parents effectively work in partnership. This means more than simply helping with homework, and relies on teachers and parents creating the means to partake in an ongoing dialogue, between home and school.

An article in this week's Times Educational Supplement, specifically about The Compton School in Finchley, north London, makes the point that by involving their parents, pupils’ behaviour and results can be improved.
