Family Information Service

The Family Information Directory helps family members to remain informed of local activities, childcare and services; and provides additional information and understanding through supportive guidance notes. It covers subjects such as:

  • Childcare
  • Youth and Leisure Services
  • Activities, clubs and associations across the Borough to enhance the child’s wellbeing and development
  • Family Support Services
  • Health
  • Education
  • Money and welfare

To find the directory entry for our school and others, from the homepage click on the Pale blue  ‘Schools and learning’ tab. This will display all entries for Poole schools.

Studies show that children achieve more when schools and parents work together. Families can also work more effectively if parents know what services are available to them. If added parental involvement helps a child’s educational development, then parents who are informed on a wider range of crucial aspects can be better equipped to support their child’s development.
