Schools: Parents

Volume 460: debated on Wednesday 23 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what guidelines his Department has issued to schools on contacting students' parents. (139010)

In June 2000, the Department issued guidance to schools about who they must involve in issues about a child's education and who they must keep informed about school matters (Guidance DfES/0092/2000). It includes guidance about responding to non-resident parents who wish to be involved in their children's education.

A copy of the guidance has been placed in the Library. It is in the process of being updated and a new version should be available later this year.
