Home School Community Liaison Scheme

The Home School Community Liaison Scheme (HSCL) is a major mainstream preventative strategy for pupils at risk of not reaching their potential in the educational system because of background characteristics which tend to adversely affect pupil attainment and school retention. The scheme focuses directly on the salient adults in childrens’ educational lives while seeking direct benefits for the children themselves.

The underlying policy of the scheme is one that seeks to promote partnership between parents and teachers. The purpose of this partnership is to enhance pupils’ learning opportunities and to promote their retention in the education system. In addition, the HSCL Scheme places great emphasis on collaboration with the local community. The HSCL Scheme is the pioneer in involving the school in the life of the community and involving the community and its agencies in the life of the school.
