Scottish government consultation


The Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006 sets out the role parents, schools and education authorities must play in ensuring all parents are fully involved and engaged in their children’s learning and in the life and work of our schools.

The Scottish Government made a commitment to update, strengthen and modernise the guidance as part of its joint Scottish Government / Convention of Scottish Local Authorities “Learning Together” Action Plan.

We are running a full public consultation to seek the views of a wider audience to refine the updated draft guidance which launched today, Friday 24 January 2020, and will run until Thursday 30 April 2020.

The refreshed statutory guidance and associated consultation questionnaire can be accessed at:

We hope to hear from anyone who has an interest in how parents can be fully involved and engaged in children’s learning.
