Lots of families are finding themselves in a difficult financial position at the moment. Schools can be a really valuable source of support and advice. In this survey we want to hear from you about how your school communicates with you about costs and money, and how useful it is.

Whether you are living on a low income, or haven’t experienced this but have views about how your school communicates with you, we would like to hear from you. Your answers will help us build a picture of what good communication about costs and money is like, and what you as parents and carers like and respond to.

What you tell us will help us help schools, local authorities and the Scottish Government understand what works best for parents and carers, and what could be improved. 

You don't have to give us your name and you won’t be identified by your answers. We might use the words that you write in reports and resources for schools but it won’t be possible to identify you if we do – for example “I like to hear what my child is doing in class.” (Mum with children in primary school).

The survey should take around ten minutes to complete. All questions are optional and you can scroll past any you don't want to answer. This survey closes on 6 December 2020

This survey is by the Cost of the School Day project at Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) in Scotland and the National Parent Forum of Scotland. If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about your experiences instead, please contact the team at
