Education Analytical Services: Privacy Notice for Parents and Carers on the Parental Involvement and Engagement Census

Data we collect

Where do you get your data about my views from?

The data of you and your views is initially received by the local authority from conducting their own surveys with yourself.

What happens if I do not finish the survey?

Your progress is automatically saved after each page when completing the survey. This means that responses provided will be saved and submitted on your behalf, even if the survey was not completed.

Do you get all the data schools and local authorities have about me?

No.  Although schools and local authorities require and collect a lot of additional information about you, not all of this information is shared with the Scottish Government.  For example, we will not receive any contact details that schools have about you (e.g. telephone numbers, email addresses, etc.).  We also do not collect your name or address.

What data about me is shared with you?

The information about you that is shared with, and processed by, the Scottish Government will be:

  • Your Child’s School Name
  • Your Views of your Child’s School
  • Your Views of your Child’s School Parent Council
  • Your Views of Family Learning
  • Your Home Postcode
  • Your Gender
  • Your Age Group
  • Your Ethnic Group
