Parent Advice

Throughout the year we will host a variety of parent information evenings to share advice with parents that can contribute to their child’s academic and personal development.  Details of these evenings will be sent via parentmail with booking details available on the homepage.

We also work closely with Herts County Council to ensure that parents can access independent advice when it is needed the most.  We are therefore pleased to signpost parents to the Families First portal. 

Families First is Hertfordshire's programme of early help services for families. It is aimed at taking action to support a child, young person or their family, as soon as a problem emerges. This can be at any stage in a child's life from pre-birth to adulthood and applies to any problem or need that the family cannot deal with on their own.

Hertfordshire County Council’s Childhood Support Services

Hertfordshire County Council’s Childhood Support Services have developed a directory that shows all parenting provision in one place so that both parents/carers and professionals can see what parenting support is available in Hertfordshire.

The directory allows parents/carers and professionals to view parenting provision either by district or county wide and also allows parents/carers to: 

• search the directory using keywords
• see a map of provision
• view expected outcomes of courses
• see if crèche provision is available

The parenting directory is available at 


The parenting directory lists all courses that are available to parents/carers in Hertfordshire and cover a range of topics including: • parenting a child with additional needs • healthy relationships healthy baby programme • confident fathers programme • caring dads • understanding teens. 


Safe Use of the Internet


Monday 15 January, 2018


The internet is an inspiring and positive place that is changing the way that we live our lives, do our work and enjoy our recreation. It can be a challenge to keep up to date with your child’s use of technology but it is vital that we support children and young people to use the internet responsibly and safely. This session will help parents to consider how best to support their child/ren to manage their online lives. It will cover how to reduce the risk of harmful or hurtful content and contact, and will focus on supporting positive and responsible online conduct.
