Inspiring every child and young person to be lifelong learners, global citizens and successful people engaged in their community is important. Schools play a pivotal role in connecting teachers and students to learning through real world experiences, and in creating positive partnerships with families and the broader community.
Key highlights include:
- state schools having active partnerships with industries or universities
- placing successful partnerships at the centre of our school improvement agenda
- revitalising the Parent and Community Engagement Framework.

Ideas into action
Working together to maximise student learning
Research shows that the most successful schools engage students, parents, carers and the community as partners in supporting student learning and wellbeing. Many schools have already developed strategies to engage with parents and community. The overwhelming evidence that parent engagement has a positive effect on student achievement has led to all state schools and their communities being encouraged to strengthen their engagement—with and between students, teachers, parents and carers, support staff, community, industry and business groups.
Parent and Community Engagement Framework helps students, schools, parents and the community to work together to maximise student learning and wellbeing.
