It is widely recognised that if pupils are to maximise their potential from schooling they will need the full support of their parents. This report presents findings from a literature review on the relationship between parental involvement, parental support and family education on pupil achievement and adjustment in schools. The study explores why and how parents become involved in supporting their children, the impact such support has, and the particular characteristics of parental support that have the greatest effects. Chapters include: issues in researching parental involvement; the impact of parental involvement on achievement and adjustment; how does parental involvement work?; ethnicity, parental involvement and pupil achievement; differences between parents in levels of involvement; enhancing parental involvement in practice: focus on parent/​school links; and adult and community education and parent training programmes.
