Ending child poverty and improving child mental health is “everybody’s business”, as is a child’s education. This edition of Better presents perspectives and research frameworks on school-parent partnership working, discusses the importance of exploring longitudinal studies from birth through to school life, and describes two evidence-based programmes which acknowledge the importance of parents and schools working together in the success of improving child outcomes.
