The VRP have commissioned a pilot for student and parent engagement at Stone Soup Academy.


As part of this project, a Parent Engagement Coach conduct home visits for all students, giving special support to those with lower attendance and other key risk factors for violence and exploitation. Help is provided to both students and parents, empowering students to reduce their school absence by supporting them to make positive choices, whilst increasing parental capacity to enable a sustainability of approach into the future.
