Learning with Parents is a charity with a vision for every child to be supported at home to fulfil their potential. Our mission is to motivate and empower families to have enjoyable learning experiences together.
The pandemic has shone an even brighter light on the importance of effectively supporting parents. Despite being a focus for schools, children from disadvantaged backgrounds are still months behind their peers. Parents are the key to solving this and their engagement in their child's learning has a greater impact than the quality of the school. At Learning with Parents, we work with schools and families to unlock this potential.
