Supporting Migrant Parental Involvement in the Irish Primary Education System
“Supporting Migrant Parental Involvement in the Irish Primary Education System” is a project run in 2008/2009 aimed at providing information and support to third-country national parents of children who are in primary education. The Irish National Parents Council staff visited 31 drop in centres during the project. The innovative approach was to support migrant parents to become full members of their school community and the project sustainably changed the way the organisation worked.
The National Parents Council of Ireland represents parents’ views on all issues they may be concerned about for their children at school. The organisation works for their rights and empowers them so that they can take responsibility and make choices about their role as educators. NPC also contributes to the advancement of the early and primary education of all children and supports the involvement of parents in all stages.
