It is now 10 years since the introduction of the Parental Involvement Act 2006 and the authority is revising its Parental Engagement Strategy. As part of the review NLC want to accurately comment on schools’ current and intended relationship with parents.
The recently published Education Scotland Act 2016 and the HGIOS4 both contain dedicated sections which emphasise the need for schools and parents to work effectively to enhance pupil progress and school improvement.
To that end two surveys have been created for schools and parents to reflect and comment on current practice and suggest how parental engagement might be improved.
Can I encourage yourself, as a member of your school’s Parent Council and through you the wider Parent Forum, to take some time to complete the survey as your thoughts are immensely valuable.
