By the end of June 2008 all schools in England are to receive a set of resources to support the move towards online reporting.
The expectation is that by September 2010 all secondary schools will need to offer parents online reporting through secure online access, wherever they are and whenever they want. Primary schools must meet this requirement by 2012.
In a nutshell secondary schools will receive:
- An introduction for schools including DVD
- an online reporting framework and guidance designed to help assess a school’s readiness and determine priority areas for attention
- details of the SSAT’s EPRA (Engaging Parents in Raising Achievement) toolkit which looks at the wider issues of developing parental engagement.
They will also be given the opportunity to attend a workshop during the Autumn term 2008. Additional information and support for schools including school experiences, FAQs and research reports is available on the Becta website at www.becta.org.uk/schools/parentalengagement
