85% of parents want to play an active role in their child’s education
Parents consistently tell us they want to be more involved in their child’s education and by bringing home and school closer together, all children will benefit. It is a well-evidenced fact that greater parental participation in education means a greater outcome for all children in all schools.
That’s why we invest heavily in representing parent views with our Parent Voice Report, our flagship piece of research, allowing us to understand and champion parent sentiment in schools and education as a whole.
The 2021 report is the result of our seventh Annual Parent Survey and it is representative of all people in a parenting role in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. As the authority on parent voice, we now have seven years of data that means we are able to track trends and continue to proactively identify key areas for concern for parents.
