Aberdeen parents are to be offered a greater role in their children’s schooling under a new scheme.
Aberdeen City Council has published an updated parental involvement strategy.
It encourages schools to involve parents more in their children’s learning.
According to the strategy, schools will be encouraged to “create a range of activities for parents to get fully involved in their children’s learning with the curriculum”.
They will also be encouraged to set up social media accounts, blogs and school websites to communicate with parents, and ask parents to provide feedback on aspects of the school.
All school communication should be clear and without jargon, the strategy says.
The council’s education committee convener Councillor John Wheeler said: “Improved parental engagement will help parents to support their child’s learning and raise aspirations.”
The strategy will take into account local needs.
