An integral part of the health‐promoting school approach is the development of sound links and partnerships with parents. Highlights the benefits of fostering home‐school liaison in relation to both general education and health promotion. Discusses activity in this area in terms of a continuum, with information on the curriculum given by schools at one end and community partnerships at the other. Concludes from the findings of recent surveys that, in England, schools are at the early stages of developing liaison with parents. Identifies a number of barriers to progress. Calls for clear, realistic policies at the national level, and for practical guidance that would enable schools to convert policy to practice.
