Research shows that when schools have an emphasis on specifically engaging fathers and father-figures, they see a significant benefit for their students and their whole school community.

Our new initiative is aimed at working together to engage fathers and support family partnerships, and to provide schools with an easy to action tool to audit their school’s family partnership ranking.

The tool’s progress reviews allow for monitoring, identifying opportunities for improvement and increasing rankings over time.

And, at the heart of this tool is the student. It supports the building of a positive learning environment to motivate and build children’s confidence and wellbeing, as well as support their academic outcomes.

The launch of the Family Partnership Tool in Australia aligns with World Wellbeing Week.
