Working with parents and carers is the third KidsMatter Primary component. Component 3 is about schools and families working together to support children.

KidsMatter offers the whole school staff opportunities to have:

  • a shared understanding about why this so important to every child in their school
  • an understanding of the importance of their role in building parent-teacher relationships so as to strengthen a culture of mutual support
  • a shared focus on learning and planning to do it better.

Target areas and goals help make planning in this component more focused and effective.
