There is a large body of research on parents’ engagement with schools but much less is known about whether this differs for migrant and native parents. The chapter draws on national-level data in relation to teacher perceptions of immigrant parent contact with them, and interest in, their children’s education, in addition to qualitative analysis of patterns of engagement between immigrant parents and their teachers/principals in a number of primary schools.
