Family-School Partnerships Framework
The Australian Family-School Partnerships Framework is a resource for school communities. Its purpose is to encourage and guide schools, school systems, parent groups and families to support family-school partnerships.
The Framework is intended for school systems, schools, school leaders (both staff
and parents), families and other interested people working together to develop
partnerships. The Framework is an opportunity to take stock and ask:
• to what extent are partnerships occurring?;
• in whose opinion are partnerships occurring?; and
• is there evidence from staff and parents on the performance of partnerships?
The Framework is the foundation document that supports The Strengthening family and community engagement in student learning resource . This resource also incorporates the School Assessment toolkit and in addition the Family School and Community Partnerships Bureau will assist as you work through the School Assessment process and make plans for action.
