National Parent Forum of Scotland

The National Parent Forum of Scotland was set up to give Parent Councils and Parents an opportunity to discuss and raise educational issues of mutual interest or concerns at a national level.

The Forum has a membership made up of volunteer parent representatives from every local education authority area in Scotland. The National Parent Forum of Scotland provides a variety of opportunities and support for parents which include:

  • running focus groups and online surveys for parents to have their say;
  • holding national and local events such as conferences and information days;
  • keeping parents up to date with the latest educational developments through their website, e-newsletter and social media channels;
  • supporting local parent councils by providing advice, information and practical help;
  • providing parent friendly information through a series of ‘Nutshells’.

The Forum works in partnership with national and local government and other organisations involved in education to ensure that parents play a full and equal role in education. Providing parental views at a local and national level helps ensure that all children achieve the best educational outcomes. The National Parent Forum of Scotland also identifies common educational issues of concern across Scotland and raises these with the appropriate bodies.
