The National Parent Forum of Scotland
Welcome to the National Parent Forum of Scotland (NPFS) online discussion.
Ahead of their third annual conference on October the 6th (register free here), the NPFS are hosting an online discussion all this week (1-5 October) for parents and others here on Engage for Education.
They’ll be kicking off with questions around key educational topics of interest to parents including Curriculum for Excellence and the NPFS, Scottish Government Ministers and officials, Education Scotland and SQA will respond and contribute to the debate.
Discussion is open to all parents and carers and others who have an interest in contributing. Join in, and encourage parents to do so, all this week on Engage. There will also be short polls each day on our Facebook page.
“This is the second year that Engage has hosted an online debate leading up to the NPFS conference. Last year’s debate was a great success and I hope that as many parents and carers as possible can take part and contribute to the discussions this year. I would also hope to see as many of you as possible at our third annual conference at Bishopbriggs Academy this Saturday. We have new workshops this year just for children, as well as parents workshops and seminars available throughout the day covering different aspects of CfE implementation and new National Qualifications.”
Iain Ellis, Chair of the National Parent Forum of Scotland
Day 1: 1 October
There is loads of evidence that shows that when you engage well with parents, children do better and you can raise attainment of children. Particularly for those children who need it most. What should the Scottish Government and Local Authorities be doing to recognise the value of engaging with parents around learning, and how should this be reflected more consistently across all of Scotland? Please share good and bad practices.
