The Seven Dimensions of Family Partnerships at AGPS:
Communicating Engaging families and staff in regular, meaningful two-way communication about children and young people’s learning needs.
Connecting learning at home Involving families in their child’s learning activities at home, including homework as well as other learning activities that include the families’ culture, history and language.
Building community and identity Ensuring early childhood services and schools practices, policies and programs reflect and value the diversity of families in their community.
Recognising the role of the family Recognising families as the first and primary educators of their children. Acknowledging the lasting influence families have on their children’s attitudes and achievements.
Consultative decision-making Facilitating family participation in consultation and decision-making as participants in governance and advocacy through parent associations, committees and other forums.
Collaborating Developing relationships with the not-for-profit sector, community groups and business to assist families’ abilities to improve learning and development outcomes for children and young people.
Participating Including families in early childhood service-based or school-based learning activities.
