Family Approach

Fife Gingerbread's new initiative “The Family Approach” builds on all the learning we have gained from being part of the Big Lottery Improving Futures Fund.

Tackling the attainment gap and wellbeing of children is paramount and therefore the relationship between home and school is of great importance.

Our approach is to tackle the barriers that prevent a child from achieving their potential by providing support at school and at home.

We work in partnership to build professional, trusting and non-judgemental relationships with schools and in a manner that supports and nurtures families.

The outcomes you can expect to see from this initiative are:

  • Parents and children assisted in school and at home.
  • Parents supported to attend appointments and meetings.
  • Children will have improved attendance.
  • Children will participate in out of school activities.
  • Families will have improved key life skills.
  • Families and children will remain engaged during holidays.
