Family-School Partnerships Framework

The Family-School Partnerships Framework document contains:

• A vision for improved partnerships between Australian families and schools
• A set of principles to guide families and schools in developing partnerships
• Seven key dimensions of effective family-school partnerships
• A set of strategies providing practical guidance to school communities and school systems in implementing and fostering family-school partnerships.

The Framework was published by the Federal Government and endorsed by the state Education Ministers in 2008, and refreshed in 2017 with a series of supporting materials, offering research insights, practical advice and a range of resources including fact sheets and case studies. All the materials are based on extensive research and policy work done by the Family-School & Community Partnerships Bureau, which is no longer operating.
