National Parent Forum of Scotland

​​ The National Parent Forum of Scotland is a volunteer led organisation. It works in partnership with national and local government and other organisations involved in education and child wellbeing issues to ensure that parents play a full and equal role in education. When parents are involved in their children’s learning, it benefits children, families and schools: children do better.

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

  • running focus groups and online surveys for parents to ha​ve their say on national issues and policies;
  • 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’.
