Parents in Education funding for school and preschool communities
Our relationships with parents are at the centre of success for every child at school.
Parents in Education (PIE) funding is available to government schools and preschools. The funding is for parent engagement projects that help parents to:
- engage in their child’s education
- feel empowered to support learning at home through strong partnerships with schools.
Applications for the 2020 school year are closed.
Schools and preschools who submitted an application will be advised of the outcome before the end of the 2019 school year.
Applicants can contact us to find out more about the application and assessment process by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

- enhancing the knowledge, professional skills and capacity of educators
- a richer, more diverse and inclusive school community.
