Overview

Ofsted - Covid19 Series - Briefing on Schools September 2020

These two extracts from the latest Ofsted briefing form the basis for our session 'Learning from the Lockdowns- Effective Engagement with Families' in which we will review and unpick the findings relating to families from the above briefing, and importantly, explore the implications for schools' practice in working in partnership with parents and the wider family.The aim of the session is for attendees to be equipped with further knowledge and a range of practical strategies to , through developing family engagement, build the capacity of all staff and parents to support children and young people's learning now and in the future.

'Leaders also talked about the challenges of communicating with families about what they wanted pupils to learn, helping families to become confident in working with their children and making sure that all pupils had some good-quality learning to do. Some mentioned how difficult it was for their pupils to complete work at home, for example because of a lack of space. Overall, these challenges meant that many pupils missed out on much of their learning last term.'

'Some leaders talked about the improved relationships that they had formed with families, some of whom had grown to trust them more during the last term. These leaders commented that they wanted to maintain and build on these positive relationships. Leaders described how they had gone out of their way to find the best ways to communicate with families during the lockdown period, using their websites, social media, telephone calls, surveys and sometimes visits to homes'
