NPFS has been contacted by parents in various local authorities about the return to normal exams with all course content added in, as some feel their young people are still not ready to cope with added pressure. As a result, we have had discussions with allied interest groups and are opening this snap survey for parents/carers of young people in secondary settings to capture views on the impact of lost learning and disrupted educational routines.
As this is a responsive piece of work, the survey is only open until noon on Monday, 19 June.
Results from this survey will directly inform our forward response and engagement with government and other stakeholders in education at the highest level, this will also help us respond to media requests with a fair and clear voice on behalf of parents and carers across Scotland.
The National Parent Forum of Scotland (NPFS) is a volunteer-led organisation that works to ensure that parents play a full and equal role in education. It was set up in 2009 to give Parent Councils and parents an opportunity to discuss and raise educational issues of mutual interest or concerns at a national level.
