Parent and community engagement

Parent and student reading togetherParents and the wider community play an important role in creating a safe and supportive school environment. Schools benefit when school staff engage in regular positive, respectful interactions with students and their family.

Parents are valuable partners in supporting the school and their child's learning and behaviour. Parents have valuable insights about how to best support their child's behaviour and learning.

Schools involve parents and the school community in developing the Responsible behaviour plan for students. This helps to align the behaviour expectations of the school to community expectations and means everyone shares an understanding of what is expected.

Successful schools communicate clearly the school's expectations for student behaviour to students and their parents at enrolment and throughout the student's enrolment. Data, information and strategies are consistently shared with all parents.​
