Slide 4 - Tekstslide

Strategies to overcome potential barriers?
The key person approach:
A key person is a member of staff work in responsible for their key children.
The key person would work in partnership with parents and professionals to ensure the child is best supported. 
This could range from:
Learning & Development 
Safeguarding and welfare
Individual wellbeing 
An open door policy: This approach to partnership working is to ensure parents feel welcome to talk to staff whenever required. The aim is to accommodate parents varied lifestyles and commitments.
Encouraging home communication: 
Most education settings will ensure they are communicating with parents well using family forms, tapestry (or any app), questionnaires, parents evening, newsletters or phone calls.

Slide 7 - Tekstslide

Parenting Style
This parenting style will emphasise obedience and control, leaving little room for compromise. Reasons for rules are not always explained to the child/ren.
A permissive parent will have a few rules or expectations. They may present a relaxed approach to certain behaviour. A parent may be warm and nurturing but will have minimal expectations.
This parenting style will set rule and expectations with boundaries. Parents using this style of parenting will take time to explain these to the child/ren and take onboard their thoughts.
Parents using this style are influenced by their instincts and upbringing. They base this on what they believe is right and wrong.
May demonstrate a lack of responsiveness, leaving children alone. Can lead to neglect.
This parenting style is when parents are heavily involved which could limit children's independence. 

Slide 8 - Tekstslide

How might different parenting styles affect the way you work in partnership?
