If you are a parent or carer with children at school, we really want to hear what you have to say about how you are coping during this Coronavirus crisis.

Councils and schools are putting lots of things in place to try to support you and your children while schools are closed, such as help with the cost of food, and support for learning. We want to know what’s working well, and what else would help you at this time, particularly if you are facing money worries.

We will share the results of this survey with the government, councils and schools to let them know what is working well and what could be done differently to support families when times are hard.

We don’t ask for your name and you won’t be identified by your answers. We might use the words that you write on our website, on our social media feeds and in reports – e.g. “I thought this really helped my child.” (Mum, Aberdeen).

If you have any questions or would like to talk with us in a different way, get in touch at The survey will close on 25 May 2020. 

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.
