It's Your Child's Life
Working with parents to support children’s learning
'It’s Your Child's Life' is a parental engagement programme which helps parents to help their children thrive in school. By giving parents a real insight into what their child is learning and how they are being taught, parents become the real partners in their child’s learning journey and become actively involved in their education.
Delivered by teachers rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, with vast experience and proven reputation of working with families of children with SEND and EAL, the programme has been described as ‘The Golden Ticket’ between home and school.

What Headteachers and SLT Say
“I was stopped by parents who wanted to share how much they have enjoyed the course. They were full of praise as to how much it has helped them help their children and how much it has inspired them. This is making such a difference to our pupils and families and is worth every penny.”
