Enhancing Academic Performance in Primary Schools: The Crucial Role of Parental Involvement

Marsha Cruickshank

Abstract: This study underscores the pivotal role of parental engagement in a child's educational journey, revealing its significant influence on academic achievement and well-being. Through effective communication with schools and active participation in both home-based activities and school events, parents forge stronger connections that lead to notable improvements in their children's academic performance. The study correlates increased parental involvement with marked advancements in socio-emotional growth and a heightened eagerness for learning. However, it also acknowledges the challenges that parents may encounter, such as time constraints and unclear expectations from schools. Cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds are highlighted as influential factors in how parents participate, suggesting a call for tailored approaches to engagement. The research culminates by championing inclusive strategies that recognize and harness the unique contributions of parents, positioning them as essential allies in the educational process.
