We worked with a Brent Primary School to deliver a 12 week project for parents with English as an additional language. This project was pitched towards early years parents and an additional aim was to encourage parents to feel more engaged with their children’s school at a critical early stage. Parents participated in Drama and Movement sessions each week culminating in the showing of a traditional fairy tale for their children. Parents reported feeling more confident with their spoken English at the end of the drama project and had huge gains from their baseline English assessments. As well as improvement in spoken English, parents reported increased feelings of wellbeing, stress reduction, less isolation and feeling more comfortable in the school environment. They also said that their children had expressed feelings of pride towards them and said that they were happier at home as a result.
