Schools Information Guides purchase options

What are they?

The Child Law Advice Service offers a schools information service. For a small fee, this service provides school professionals with detailed information about their legal rights and duties in the form of our Schools Information Guides.

Our aims are:

  • To ensure that school professionals are in full understanding of their legal duties.
  • To ensure that school professionals are clear on how to implement these legal duties.
  • To ensure that school professionals are aware of the relevant law, guidance, advice and legislation to rely upon.

We do not offer:

  • A mediation service
  • Representation
  • Over the phone/Email or face to face advice

Please note the information pages below are for school professionals only in order to make an informed decision about their position.

How does it work?

Schools Information Guides can be bought by annual subscription or purchased individually. An annual subscription allowing full access to all our Schools Information Guides for a period of one year costs £35. Individual guides can be purchased for £2.

Annual subscriptions and individual guides are purchased through PayPal. You don’t need to have a PayPal account in order to use this service – you can pay with any standard debit or credit card.

All Schools Information Guides can be viewed on screen and can also be printed in ‘print friendly’ versions.
