Working together for our children
Reviewing parental involvement: one year on
National Parent Forum of Scotland annual conference
March 10th 2018- Edinburgh
When parents are involved in their children’s learning, it benefits children, families and schools: children do better. This was the main finding of the NPFS 2016 review of the 2006 Parental Involvement Act.
One year on since publishing our review, our annual conference will be a day of parental involvement in action. It will give parents, parent council members, teachers, local authority education staff, policymakers and others the chance to meet, share ideas with and learn from each other.
Whether you’re a parent, teacher or policymaker, this conference will inspire and motivate you. There will be opportunities to discuss what works, what doesn’t work and what might work in the future. You’ll be able to have your say on how far we’ve come, and what we need to do together to improve parents’ involvement in their children’s learning.
Through a combination of workshops, presentations, information drop-ins, and starting with a keynote from John Swinney, Deputy First Minister of Scotland, we’ll look at parental involvement from all angles.
Our conference remains Free of Charge for all delegates .
John Swinney, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills
Lindsey Watt, Head Teacher, Castleview Primary School, Robert Owen Award Winner 2017
