Parents Matter

Parents do matter.

They can make all the difference to children’s lives.

Research shows very clearly too that schools and colleges that take parental engagement seriously can improve academic performance; relationships between parents, teachers and schools; and the home learning environment.

The Parents Matter project was designed to reduce the significant problem across Europe of school dropout.   

This website offers help to schools and colleges who want to provide support and training for parents, with a particular focus on those parents from migrant communities. You will find advice and guidance here that has been developed and tested in six European countries.
