At Cogent Computer Solutions, we are passionate about the well-being and education of children and young people, our belief in the positive outcomes of parental engagement is at the core of everything we do.

Parental engagement has been high on the government agenda since 2003 and much more research has since taken place.

“Parental engagement has a large and positive impact on children’s learning… It is therefore a priority for schools to identify interventions that are effective in supporting parental engagement, particularly for those parents who are not significantly involved in their children’s education.”

Cogent Computer Solutions believe parental engagement is about encouraging parents to play an active role in every aspect of their children’s lives, not just at home. It is proven that services and parents working together to help children and young people reach their full potential leads to improved outcomes for the child.

No parent is unreachable!  The challenge is identifying the best intervention strategies for differing types of parents that are effective in supporting parental engagement a child’s learning.
