Information for the Schoolsnet Schools Guide comes from a number of sources, including questionnaires returned by thousands of schools every year. Any school wishing to update or enhance its profile should contact us. Currently, infant schools are not included.
Exam data for schools in England is provided by the Department for Education and Skills.
Inspection summaries and reports are derived from the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted), in England; Estyn, in Wales; HM Inspectorate of Education, in Scotland; and the Department of Education Northern Ireland. For independent schools, reports are derived from the Independent Schools Inspectorate.
In the autumn of 2006, Schoolsnet became the only website in the United Kingdom that enables parents to write their own reviews of every school in the country. And in January 2007, it became the first online community specifically for parents.
Every year, Schoolsnet provides information to The Sunday Times for its much-praised Parent Power CD-ROM; the last publication was on November 19 2006.

- Primary lessons: Hundreds of lesson plans for primary teachers;
