About Learning with Parents

Learning with Parents is a charity with a vision for every child to be supported at home to fulfil their potential. We are narrowing the attainment gap by supporting all parents and carers to engage in their children’s learning.

We do this by leading the Parental Engagement Forum – a group of organisations and researchers connecting to improve home learning across the sector. We also provide a ground-breaking parental engagement programme to primary schools, which aims to motivate and empower all families to have enjoyable learning experiences together.

In the last year, our charity has become a leading player in parental engagement, working with over 10,000 families and large organisations such as the BBC, the Department for Education and Oak National Academy.
