All parents of school pupils in Scotland are being asked to take part in a census to let us know how you feel about your involvement with your child’s school and their learning.
This is a national survey that all local authorities across Scotland are undertaking during May/June. It can be completed on a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or PC and will take around 10 minutes to complete.

The survey will close on Friday 28 June. You can complete it as many times as you wish – for example if you have children at more than one Secondary or Primary School.
Parents and carers are the most important influence on children’s lives and research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s learning, children do better and achieve more at school. Although you can choose not to take part we would encourage all parents to complete the survey to make us aware of your views and let us know where we can improve parental involvement across Highland.
We will share the census data with Scottish Government during the course of the summer although the information will be anonymised and it will not be possible to identify individual parent responses. The census will drive improvements locally and also inform the progress of policies at a national level.
