You know the difference having parents onside can make, but when they’re hard to reach and the traditional ways of engaging them don’t work, what’s the answer?
Easington Colliery Primary School in County Durham, serves one of the most deprived wards in the country. Successful relationships with parents is ‘mission-critical’ and they are succeeding by using SIMS Learning Gateway. Now Easington can keep parents informed, wherever they are, helping parents stay actively involved in their child’s education.
“The parent portal is really good… I use it at work and at home. My children like to see their achievements at home. It makes us all feel proud.” Easington Parent
“I got two points for talking in class and I got a good talking to from my mum, so I haven’t done it again… it’s a good invention – someone should have thought of it before!” Jordan, Easington Pupil
