Communicating with parents

Dealing effectively with parents is a vital skill for any education professional. The relationship is a critical one both at individual child level and in the broader sense of school reputation within the community it serves. These relationships can be very stressful for teachers and can have a negative impact on the 'day job' of delivering outstanding teaching.





My workshop will help new and experienced teachers alike deal

with the key questions of parent communication,  many of which

will strike a chord...


- How do you deal with a parent who insists that their child

  should be in the 'A' team?

- What is the best way to handle a parent with unrealistic

  expectations of their child's abilities and prospects?

- How do you handle parents' pastoral concerns?

- How do you establish your authority with a parent who is

  also a 'customer'?
