This chapter assesses the role of schools in family lives, in building community links and in helping parents and children. It emphasises that the contrast between primary and secondary schools and the special difficulties faced by parents of children with learning difficulties and special needs underlines how important schools are in family lives, and how much more help children with special needs require. It notes that wider evidence of progress is examined in light of parents’ actual experience.
