Parental Engagement Network


PEN has been working with schools and settings to engage parents and caregivers in their child's learning and development since 2011. 

Through our membership we have helped hundreds of schools develop an approach that fosters communication and understanding resulting in raised attainment. 


Don't take our word for it...


“This is exactly what we need – practical fun ways to engage parents in learning. I have been very impressed by the uptake and the very positive outcomes from the project”
