Abstract

Encouraging partnerships between parents of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and educational practitioners is a key theme in educational policy in England. However, there are unanswered questions regarding whether parents and teachers are mutually responsible for developing and maintaining these partnerships, as well as a paucity of literature eliciting the views of educational practitioners from a SEND context. This article draws on a study which explored parent and teacher experiences of partnership, specifically focusing on perceptions of responsibility regarding the development and maintenance of these partnerships. In-depth interviews were conducted with 22 parents of children with a wide range of SENDs, and 15 educational practitioners. Findings highlighted that although there appeared to be perceived mutual responsibility regarding home–school communication, educational practitioners were overall held accountable for developing and maintaining partnerships, and were required to be trustworthy and approachable in order for positive home–school relationships to flourish. © 2018 NASEN
