"Drop in for Coffee": Working with Parents in North Perth New Community Schools
Illsley, Patricia; Redford, Morag
Support for Learning, v20 n4 p162-166 Nov 2005
In this article, Patricia Illsley and Morag Redford explore the role of one New Community School project in Scotland in its engagement with families and the wider community. They describe the use of a community learning and development approach to inter-agency working, which has enabled parents to take an active role in the project. The authors consider the importance of initial contact, the informality of provision and the benefits for both parents and staff in working together to build an inclusive school community.
