We are really excited for this years Scottish Learning Festival in Glasgow’s SECC on Wednesday and Thursday.
Gathered Together will be delivering a seminar on Thursday 25th at 12pm, and we will be looking at the impact of parents being involved in their children’s education and the benefits of getting parents from different cultures to the school and the children. 100 people (!) have signed up for our seminar so unfortunately there are no spaces left but we’ll make sure we put information from the seminar up on our website.
We are looking to hear from teachers about their experience with parental involvement. We want to know what are the barriers you’ve faced, who are the parents that have inspired and supported you, and why you think parental involvement matters. Use #parentsaspartners to get your voice heard and you may be featured in Thursday’s seminar!
WELCOME TO OUR NEW BLOG!
GATHERED TOGETHER is a brand new project working to support ethnic and cultural minority parents to become more involved in their child’s education and the school community. We also work with Parent Councils and give them the chance to think about why some parents don’t get involved in the school community and provide the opportunity to develop practical solutions to help to overcome any barriers.
We are supporting parental participation across all cultures.
We’ll be updating this blog regularly and sharing the stories of parents who work with us.
