Empowering Parents Across the Borough

Description

Following the work of a parenting intervention team over a four-week period, this video asks how successful they are, and meet the parents they work with.

In 2006, the ethnically diverse London Borough of Tower Hamlets introduced free parenting classes available to all parents at any school trained to run the courses.

The video follows the work of the parenting intervention team, the teachers and community leaders who run the classes, and parents who attend. One of the parents involved is Tracey, a mother of three, who struggles to be a good role model for her daughter Ellie, who is under-achieving at primary school.

In looking at their work, it examines what impact the parenting classes are having on families from white, Somali, and Bengali communities, and whether they are the answer to getting parents more engaged with their children's education.
