Parenting Support

We aim to provide holistic support to everyone in our school community, in all areas of family life, which is why Ashlyns School subscribes to Tooled Up Education. This gives Ashlyns families privileged access to a regularly updated digital library of evidence-based tips, activities, advice videos and podcasts, on matters relating to parenting and family life. It is curated by one of the UK’s leading experts on parental engagement in children’s lives and learning, Dr Kathy Weston.

Dr Weston is passionate about bridging the gap between research and real-life parenting. Our students have a vast educational and life journey ahead of them. It is important that they are ‘Tooled Up;’ equipped with the resilience required to reach their destinations safely and successfully. This clip shows more information on the resources available.
