What School Could Be – Ted Dintersmith

ACARA – Purposes of Education

Parent engagement is one of several elements identified through research that provide schools with the capacity to improve student learning outcomes. CSPV provides a platform and forum for parent leadership and opportunity to support parents in understanding their role in education and how they contribute to successful learning outcomes for children.

All parents have the capacity to engage with their children's learning, from a simple conversation about their learning, to understanding and sharing their goals, encouraging them to reach their potential and working alongside the teacher in specific areas of support.

Support for parents to engage in their children's learning is a key element of the work of CSPV. As children's first educators, parents are encouraged to work alongside teachers to guide and support their children's learning by engaging in their learning, by taking an interest and supporting the ethos and values of their Catholic school and engaging in the life of the school community. This is what sets our schools apart from others, when parents and teachers build authentic partnerships to support children and the learning growth of the whole child.
