Support for parents at your school

Parentkind's Be School Ready campaign is now in its fifth year!

Coronavirus (Covid-19) update: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, not all the ideas included in our Be School Ready pages will be relevant while social distancing measures are in place and school buildings are closed to the majority of children. Your child’s school will keep you updated as they continue to develop their plans for re-opening safely, and over the coming months we’ll be adding new blogs with tips and ideas from teachers, parents and other experts to help support you through these difficult and uncertain times.

Our 13,500 member PTAs do a brilliant job spreading the word and supporting new parents as their children start primary school or move on to secondary school. This year we're making it even easier for all schools and PTAs to get involved.

We want all parents to have a really great partnership with their child's school. Be School Ready is a great tool to help PTAs and schools welcome new parents and let them know how they can get involved and support their child's school life.

Campaign materials 

Use our campaign materials and practical information, tips and resources to welcome new parents to your school community and help them engage with and support their child’s learning.

Use these images on your school or PTA social media pages and spread the word to parents about all the information and resources available to them as their children start school (and beyond). Please use the hashtag #BeSchoolReady in your posts:


Upload one of our web banners to your school or PTA website as you would an image, then add a link to our website to give parents access to the free information and resources.


Welcome new parents and carers to your school and engage them in school life right from the start. Display a poster at welcome meetings and on noticeboards. Personalise the posters with your school name and logo.
