Review of Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006

Review of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006

Ten years ago the Scottish Parliament passed a law to ensure that parents can be fully involved in their children’s schooling.  This was to help parents be involved with their child’s education and learning, feel welcomed to take part in the life of the school, and to be encouraged to express their views, on their school and working together with the school.

This review asks for your opinion on the impact, successes and shortfalls of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006.  This includes looking at how well schools involve parents in what they do, and finding ideas to develop ways to better involve parents in the life and work of their schools. It is also hoped that it will inspire everyone to look at the most effective way of helping parents support children in Scottish schools.

Today they are launching our Call for Evidence.  A ‘Call for Evidence’ is a way to ask the public what they think, gather information on what issues exist, and suggest ways of dealing with them.  This call for evidence asks for your views as a parent. It asks for your opinion on the impact, successes and failings of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006. This includes looking at how well schools involve parents in what they do, and finding ideas to develop ways to better involve parents in the life and work of their schools.

All of the information, including a link to the online survey, and downloadable paper copies can be found herehere.  The survey will close on October 31st.

If you are a member of your school's parent council, you can find designated parent council information and survey herehere .
