Help and Advice for Families

ParentInfo is a free service for schools which provides expert, up-to-date content for parents and carers which schools can host on their own websites.

The content is written by leading authorities on a wide range of topics including online safety, sex and relationships, health and wellbeing and family life. Each article aims to help parents develop their children's resilience against the risks they may face online or off.

ParentInfo is a new tool for schools to engage with parents on a broad range of topics. Schools have complete control over the articles they present on their website, with the ability to choose articles relevant to their specific needs. It is also a great opportunity to reach parents and carers with more complex PSHE content, written by experts in their fields.
