ISSU/NPCPP School Reopening Survey

Click HERE to access the survey which appears at the end of the page.


PLEASE NOTE THIS SURVEY IS ONLY FOR STUDENTS/PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF POST PRIMARY SCHOOLS FROM SEPTEMBER 2020 (if you/your young person is in primary school from September 2020 please do not proceed). Please answer for all your concerns, if you are a parent/guardian, please answer for all students in your care in one response.
As the reality of reopening schools in Ireland is now getting closer the logistical impact Covid19 will have is becoming clear. Following a period of nearly six months closure, many students and parents/guardians will be apprehensive about returning to school and additional resources will be necessary to facilitate a smooth transition to a new way of education for all.

In order to ensure that vital resources are utilised in the most needed areas, the NPCPP and ISSU wish to seek the opinion of their members as to what their ‘concerns’ are with regards to returning to school.The information gathered here will enable the ISSU and the NPCPP to highlight to other educational partners what the real issues are for the majority of students/parents/guardians and identify, if any, particular groups that may need extra support.

By completing this survey you give your consent for the information collected to be utilised by the National Parents Council Post Primary (NPCPP) CLG and the ISSU for public release.

Confidentiality and anonymity of responses will be upheld, in compliance with GDPR and the NPCPP’s Privacy Notice, and ISSU Privacy Notice and no information relating to respondents will be shared with external partners or Third Parties.

Please note that the purpose of this survey is not to collect personal information for the purpose of retention by the NPCPP, and email addresses are requested in the interest of transparency and to ensure that there are no duplicate submissions.

This survey is being hosted on an online platform, to which only the staff of the NPCPP and the ISSU have access. All information collected will be stored in a password protected file using cloud based technology, with access only to those staff of the NPCPP and ISSU, or members of the Board of Directors of the NPCPP, if required. If you wish to withdraw from participation in this survey, please exit at any point. If you have concerns in relation to this survey, please contact
