parental behaviour leaflet – a step in the right direction

9 May 2014

The NAHT is distributing a leaflet to its members to pass on to parents urging them to send out positive messages to their children. Whilst the leaflet lightly touches on parents being positive role models and not shouting or swearing in front of their children, for some a firmer stance is needed.

Physical and verbal abuse to staff (and in some cases other children), smoking, littering, use of foul language and handling persistent communications are just some of the issues schools increasingly seem to face whilst trying to maintain positive relationships with parents.

Schools may not wish to challenge parents’ behaviour for fear that negative comments will appear on public platforms such as Ofsted’s Parent View. Implementing a parental code of conduct or agreement that sets out the behaviour expected and what will happen when that behaviour falls short of the standard expected are increasingly being used by schools and can send a powerful message.
