Parental Engagement Surveys

We created this survey bundle to help trust and school leaders guide their strategy for engaging parents and carers. The survey was developed in collaboration with the UCL Institute of Education, with guidance from parental NGOs and practising teachers from across England. The surveys cover key criteria for building successful partnerships between the school and the parent community. 

Run this survey to: Spark a deeper and more meaningful conversation about how your parents are engaged with the school and their child's learning and. Get everyone “on the same page” about expectations and responsibilities. See which current engagement strategies work and which strategies need adjustments.

Get insights into: Mutual trust and respect between teachers and parents, expectations from teachers and parents, parental support for learning, parental engagement policies.

Respondents: Parents, teachers (optional)

Length: 37-39 questions (10-15 min)


"We really acknowledge that improving parental engagement will ultimately improve the education and the outcomes of our pupils."

— Anna Cannizzaro, United Learning

"We are very pleased with our results, it was fantastic to hear that our primary schools staff engagement outperforms others in such a large MAT survey sample. But we equally value the constructive feedback in areas for improvement. The free text responses have provided us with rich qualitative data that school leaders are sharing and working on with staff, and it is certainly informing my HR strategy in The Good Shepherds Trust’s journey of continuous improvement."

— Joanne Cambra, The Good Shepherd Trust
