This report presents the findings of a survey of 400 individuals in Wales.
This is the latest release
The re-contact survey sought to understand how confidence in the education system might be measured, and to examine issues on parental support for children’s education.
- When asked to rate their confidence in the education system in Wales on a scale from 0 to 10, where 0 was ‘not at all confident’ and 10 was ‘extremely confident’, the majority of respondents (63%) gave a score of 7 or more (defined as ‘confident’).
- When asked what they thought about the state of education in Wales nowadays on a scale of 0 to 10, where 0 was ‘extremely bad’ and 10 was ‘extremely good’ the majority of respondents (71%) gave a score of 7 or more.
- Analysis shows that people’s confidence in the education system in Wales and how they rate the state of education in Wales overall are moderately associated but that they are not considered to be the same thing.
- The vast majority (95%) of parents felt involved in their child’s learning and development, though just over half (52%) desire to be more involved than they are currently.
- Four-fifths of parents felt there are barriers to giving their child/children more support at home: most often time (42%) and the child not wanting (more) support (12%).
