Home-School Agreement

All schools are required to have a home-school agreement in order to create an inclusive culture of learning where all children will be challenged in their thinking, to achieve to the best of their abilities and strive to become lifelong learners.

Parents, the school and the children themselves are all working hard to empower our pupils to become respected citizens, to enable them to make valuable contributions locally, globally and to contribute to our world’s sustainable future.

This can be done most effectively when all staff, parents and children understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals, as detailed in our home-school agreement.

We hope you will be able to find the time to share the agreement with your child, sign it and return it to the school office where we will store it with your child’s records.

 

Home-School Agreement

Our school’s Home-School Agreement has been drawn up in consultation with parents, staff and governors.  The Agreement takes account of the School’s aims and values (as set out in the School’s prospectus) and declares the responsibilities of the school, sets out the parents’ responsibilities and what the school expects of its pupils.

A Home-School Agreement is important, because we recognise that children achieve so much more when parents and the school work together.  Your support and encouragement are vital if your child is to make the most of the school.  The Governors invite you to sign the enclosed Agreement and return it to school with your completed Admission Form.  This will indicate that you take note of the school’s responsibilities and expectations for your child.  It will also acknowledge that you accept your role and responsibilities in this partnership.

 

The School will:

  1. Encourage children to do their best at all times by providing a balanced curriculum and meeting the needs of all children.
  2. Encourage children to take care of their surroundings and others around them, by building good relationships both within and outside the school.
  3. Care for your children’s safety and happiness and act in accordance with our Child Protection policy.
  4. Arrange Parents’ Consultations to discuss progress.
  5. Let parents know if the school has any concerns about their child’s behaviour and work.
  6. Provide a written report in July.
  7. Set and monitor homework in accordance with the school’s policy.
  8. Keep Parents informed about school activities through letters home, newsletters, notices about special events via ParentPay and the school website.

  7. Let the School know about any concerns or problems that might affect my child’s work or behaviour.
