This briefing paper summarises a review of the evidence linking parental interventions to improved student attainment. The 68 studies present a mixed and far from encouraging picture for the success of parental interventions. 

The review illustrates that there is not yet enough evidence to suggest that parental intervention works, and also that a far higher standard of basic evaluation should be expected by those who commission and fund research. 

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
