Together with Families

Building a culture where family engagement is everyone’s business

Families are the first and most important influence, inspiration and support for learners. Together with Families is our commitment to build and nurture relationships with families. Our goal is to work in partnership to support our learners to succeed as:  

  • connected
  • resilient
  • creative
  • curious thinkers

Together with Families is not something new, or a one-size-fits-all way to engage with families. It aims to support and fit in with the work we are already doing.
