The CSPV views one of their significant roles in education is in developing strong and positive relationships with stakeholders who represent and provide opportunities for collaboration, connection and growth in Catholic education.Key stakeholders are carefully considered to reflect the values and goals of the CSPV, to enable our Council members to grow in their knowledge and advocate for the various key areas of focus for parents in Catholic education. The CSPV consider their main stakeholders to be parents of children in Catholic schools across Victoria.
We believe this integral group of people who are the most important influence in the lives of children have many qualities and opportunities to contribute to Catholic school communities and to be positive advocates for the improvement of academic as well as social and emotional learning outcomes for children through parent engagement.
It is our belief that to achieve engagement of parents in Catholic education, relationships are at the centre of this mission. Relationships in schools are critical to the successful outcomes of children and the relationship between school authorities and parents is essential to the success of Catholic schools in Victoria.
CSPV continues to focus energy and resources in developing strong connections with parents in school communities, supporting then in their role as the first educators of children and encouraging then to develop partnerships with schools to improve learning outcomes for their children.
