NAHT and Family Action - supporting school readiness

The NAHT is delighted to announce a new partnership with Family Action as the president’s charity. The partnership is being launched at this year’s annual conference by incoming president Bernadette Hunter and Family Action's chief executive David Holmes.

The theme of the partnership is "school readiness" and throughout the year we will be supporting parents, pupils and teachers to work together to ensure young people get the very best from their time at school.

We know that home life has a big impact on educational attainment, so if a child comes to school without having had a good night’s sleep, or they're starting the day on an empty stomach this will have a negative effect on their ability to learn.

Through this partnership there will be a series of four leaflets encouraging parents to engage with their child’s learning and showing parents what they can be doing to support their children in collaboration with the school.

As well as this, schools, teachers and pupils will be encouraged to fundraise for Family Action throughout the year.
