PARENTAL ENGAGEMENT AT MANORFIELD
WorkPath - Employment Support at Local Children's Centres
Parents and carers of children aged from 0 – 11 are now able to access a unique employment service provided by WorkPath at their local children’s centres. A dedicated Information and Advice and Guidance (IAG) officer now offers a weekly employment advice surgery in each Children’s Centre. This makes the service more accessible for residents with young children. WorkPath provides support for people at all levels of work, skill or experience. They can provide employment support, basic skills or advanced training; access to work experience, apprenticeships or graduate schemes; CV help, interview preparation and more. Parents are encouraged to book appointment by contacting their local Children’s Centres.

Parental Engagement at Manorfield
Parental engagement at Manorfield forms an intricate part of the school’s core values and principals.
Parents work closely with the staff and children to reinforce these core values and principals that make us the outstanding school we are.
As Parent Liaison I understand the importance of communication and partnership.
My aim is to engage with staff, Govenors and parents to promote a cohesive partnership that benefits both the school and children as a whole. I will facilitate the sharing of information with my parents in order to help them ensure their child’s academic success.
Parent Liaisons appreciate cultural diversity and therefore can build successful relationships with their families, which in turn facilitate more effective relationships with staff in the school and community.
- To this end , the parent liaison at Manorfield School have as an overall mission for this year, the following:
- To work together with staff members to identify and address concerns of our communities.
- To support gatherings and meetings among parents within our communities in order to encourage more effective advocacy for their students, networking systems and sharing information.
- To help build more confidence among the members of our communities so that they will feel more comfortable visiting our school, communicating with staff members and participating in school activities and generally becoming more empowered.
