Why is partnership working important?
When working in Education, partnership working is important to ensure you are meeting children's needs.
Parents, families and carers are often categorised as 'primary carer's. 
Working collaboratively ensures high quality education and learning experiences.
Partnership working can:
  • Ensure smoother transitions 
  • Support home learning 
  • Aid decision making 
  • Support individual well being 
  • Ensures the correct information is shared.

Slide 4 - Tekstslide

A shared level of expectations
When working in partnership a shared level of expectation is created, for example: providing parents information could support the parent's understanding in a specific field. 
It is important parents and carers are made aware the expectations of learning and development, this could vary in accordance to the age of the child in question. 
For example: College expectations will vary from primary school. 
Often for young babies and children, partnership working is around ensuring care routines are consistent. 
Policies and procedures are always available online for any educational provision from Early Years to college, this is so parents have access to this. 
Effective communication builds a two way relationship that positively aids how a child is supported.

The characteristics of family structures

Slide 9 - Tekstslide

Every Child Matters 2003
Every child matters is a legislation which was created and put in to effect in 2003 because of severe abuse cases with children which occurred because of the breakdown in communication when working in partnership with parents. ​
Victoria Climbe was a young girl who lived with her aunt but was abused by her aunts partner, practitioners and social services did not acknowledge this and they failed to take in to account the bruises Victoria had on her arm.​
This legislation clearly states and promotes effective partnership with working to promote the best outcomes for children.
