Improving the quality and effectiveness of relationships with families is a key concern for all those working in education.

Guidance on auditing your own work and action planning is included, and the book provides a range of practical resources which are available to download from the SAGE website. This a vital handbook for those working with the Birth to 19 age range in Children's Centres, primary and secondary schools, special schools, academies, Pupil Referral Units and Further Education colleges.
