New project

Family support worker: A way of developing partnership between school and home?

Research shows a strong relationship between parental involvement in children’s schooling and their academic achievement/school results. These findings validate the task of the school to create the most favourable conditions for pupils’ learning in partnership with parents.

In 2019, an F-9 school appointed a family support worker (FSW) for stage F-3 to strengthen cooperation between the school and parents. In 2022, the school appointed two more FSWs with a focus on stages 4-6 and 7-9. An FSW supports an educational partnership between parents and school personnel that increases conditions for children to succeed at school and in life. In line with a national strategy for parental support, family support work
aims at building trustful relationships with parents and can guide parents towards other social service agencies if needed.

This project’s goal is to generate knowledge about the school’s mission to cooperate closely with parents and how the role of a FSW can serve to promote this task. The project will build on the work the school has already done to develop an FSW’s role and establish it within other schools. Towards these aims, the project seeks to explore ways of realizing parents’ potential to create supportive learning environments at home and contribute to school
teaching contexts and contents.
