Hello Welcome to Just Answer I am a Solicitor and will assist you today. Short answer - no you are not legally obliged to invite the birth parents to parents evening. In reality - it is important that birth parents are still involved int he child's life - so far as it is in the child's interest. As they still hold parental responsibility they are entitled to information in respect of the child's education. If it's going to be uncomfortable to all be at parents evening together - have a chat with the school about this. They may well be able to offer separate parents evenings and keep the birth parents informed this way. Please do not ask if I can assist you further.

Thank you for your answer. I do inform parents of the childrens education and activities. Things are uncomfortable so I avoid any sort of confrontation. Just needed to know as they constantly make threats about court to me.

Hello Thank you for your response. There is a reason the children are with you and not their birth parents. The Local Authority are obliged to support you. If you need assistance - don't be afraid to ask them. You are providing the children with a permanent stable home and this shouldn't be jeopardised by the parents causing issues. Kind Regards Caroline
