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.

Get everyone “on the same page” about expectations and responsibilities. See which current engagement strategies work and which strategies need adjustments.

Parents are asked to consider how the information the school shares and the communication channels it uses fit their needs.
Teachers share how well the school’s approach ensures that parents get the information they need.
Parents have the opportunity to tell the school what assistance they would find most valuable.
Teachers evaluate the support currently available from the school leadership.
Mutual Trust and Respect
Parents and teachers are asked to reflect on their level of trust for each other and readiness to discuss issues openly and constructively.
