Tooled Up Education

Edge Grove is proud to be a “Tooled Up Education School”, giving all of our parents membership to this valuable resource.

‘Tooled Up Education’ provides a huge array of research-led resources to support pupil wellbeing and parents. The expertise available in these is a considerable asset which all Edge Grove parents gain access to on joining the school. We’re delighted to work in partnership with ‘Tooled Up’.

About Tooled Up Education

We aim to provide holistic support to everyone in our school community, across all areas of family life, which is why our school subscribes to a digital platform called: Tooled Up Education. This gives our families and our staff privileged access to a digital library, packed full of evidence-based tips, activities, educational webinars and enlightening podcasts, on all matters relating to mental health, aspiration, learning, digital life and family life. Tooled Up is curated by one of the UK’s leading experts on parental engagement in children’s lives and learning, Dr Kathy Weston and her experienced team. 

At Tooled Up Education, they are passionate about bridging the gap between research and real-life parenting. They understand that loving parents want to do the ‘right thing’ and that parenting is full of joys, but also many challenges. Our children have a vast educational and life journey ahead of them. It is important that they are ‘Tooled Up;’ equipped psychologically with the resilience required to reach their destinations safely and successfully. 

As a ‘Tooled Up’ parent, you will:

  • Feel extremely supported on your parenting journey.
  • Be able to ask questions about any aspect of your child’s development and get evidence-based answers. 
  • Be able to request resources, webinars, attend online talks, and feel part of a community of parents committed to doing what is optimal for their children.
