Engaging parents in raising achievement – do parents know they matter? (2007)

Introducing ‘learning to learn’ techniques leads to an increase in self-esteem and confidence amongst parents which is passed on to children. 

Working with Campaign for Learning and the University of Newcastle, and based at St Meriadoc Church of England Nursery and Infant School in Cornwall, Stephens and Pooley aimed to discover whether involving parents and introducing them to various Learning to Learn approaches would develop their children’s self-esteem and resilience as learners, and ultimately raise standards.
