Incredible Partnerships: parents and teachers working together to enhance outcomes for children through a multi-modal evidence based programme

Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the utility of an evidence-based suite of programmes, The Incredible Years (IY), to enhance outcomes for children using a parent-teacher partnership model.
Design/methodology/approach: A review of the broad evidence base for the IY parent, teacher and child programmes, uniquely focusing on the inter-relationships between home and school contexts.
Findings: Evidence suggests that it is beneficial to parents, teachers and children to deliver IY programmes applying a multi-modal approach.
Originality/value: This paper, read in conjunction with other contributions in this volume, demonstrates the growing viability of partnership strategies that support children, their families and teachers to enhance school readiness, and promote positive child outcomes.
