Breaking Down Barriers: Engaging Parents Deemed ‘Hard-to-Reach’

This project aims to investigate the specific barriers preventing engagement between Gloucestershire Secondary Schools and those parents that may be deemed ‘hard-to-reach’. The purpose is to break down some of the barriers that exist and bring the parents into the communities of the Schools their children attend providing a greater opportunity for parent/school collaboration and the benefits this can bring.
