Improving the quality and effectiveness of relationships with families is a key concern for all those working in education. Rita Cheminais provides an evaluation framework that will enable practitioners to review current practice, and further enhance and develop their partnership working with families. Six key themes of family partnership working are explored ethos, vision and policy; leadership, management and co-ordination; communication and information sharing; partnership in practice; early intervention; and effectiveness. Guidance on auditing your own work and action planning is included, and the book provides a range of practical resources which are available to download from the SAGE website.
