Improve parental engagement with Anomaly UK

Increasing parental engagement in schools can be a difficult task; with Anomaly services you can improve parental engagement whilst displaying key messages. Following the recent news to turns all schools in the UK into academies, there has been certain doubts regarding the communication between schools and parents – with Anomaly services this will never be a problem. There has been a mixed reaction from teachers and parents all over the UK after David Cameron announced plans for all schools to become academies by 2020. In recent weeks the plans have come under a bit of fire. One main concern from teachers and parents is that the plans will potentially reduce parental engagement in schools, claims which David Cameron has passionately denied. Following a recent BBC article, Mr Cameron was quoted: “Parents have a great role to play, but no school should think that simply by having parent governors you’ve solved the problem about how to engage with parents.” So how can schools improve engagement between themselves and parents?
