Guidance and model policy information for dealing with separated parents.
Research and experience has shown that separated parents can work well together in the best interests of their children and can together play a role in their children's education.
However, some parents become estranged, and do not work together or in the best interests of their children, especially during the initial stages of their separation. This is very often traumatic for any children concerned where personal family problems can have an impact on the child and on the schools the children attend.
A useful model policy is attached to this page. Schools can adopt it in an attempt to minimise any impact, clarify to all parties what is expected from separated parents and what can be expected from the school and staff.
