Parental Responsibility

The Department for Education has issued guidance to schools which states that everyone who is a parent has a right to participate in decisions about their child's education.

The guidance gives details on:

  • the definition of a parent
  • parental responsibility
  • the care of a child
  • court orders and parental responsibility
  • what schools should do, particularly in respect of the provision of information to parents and obtaining parental consent for things like extra-curricular activities and school trips
