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.
