The Department for Education has published guidance to help schools and local authorities in England understand and deal with issues relating to parental responsibility as recognised by education law, in particular in situations where parental responsibility can be confusing or unclear.

An example of this is a foster carer or friends and family (kinship) carer who does not have PR but has delegated responsibility for taking decisions about a child.
