The home-school agreement is in place to ensure that we can all work together to provide the very best education and support that is possible for all of the children.
This Home / School Agreement has been developed by the school to act as a link between parents, children and the school itself.
We look upon this information as a way to assess the needs of each party and consider the responsibilities required to meet those needs.
For our part, we will always endeavour to give each child the best possible start to the journey of ‘Life-Long Learning’. To help us in that task, we would ask you to support the school in the ways outlined overleaf.
We would appreciate it if you could sit with your child and discuss the agreement, as it represents a partnership between him/her, yourself and the school.
For your child, the school will:
- Encourage every child to reach his/ her full potential in the school and wider community.
- Provide every child with a broad and balanced curriculum that meets his/her needs.
- Work with parents to create a partnership which focuses on the needs of each child.
- Set high expectations of work and behaviour, valuing children’s achievements in both.
- Care for each child academically and pastorally.
For your child, as a family, you will:
- Make every effort to get your child to school regularly, and on time, letting us know if they are absent.
- Work with the school to create a partnership that supports your child through his / her school life.
- Support your child with homework and other opportunities for home learning.
- Encourage your child to respect the school premises and all those who work and learn there.
- Get to know about your child’s life at school, be involved in their education.
We ask each child to:
- Respect school property and everyone who uses it.
- Always try their best at everything they do.
- Cooperate with adults and children, in work and play.
- Come to school, each day, properly equipped with homework, uniform and PE kit.
- Follow the school rules, accepting rewards when things go well and consequences, should they be necessary.
If you have a concern
There may be times when you have a query about your child’s education. In most cases, your child’s class teacher will be able to help. Often, it will be possible to see a teacher at short notice, as we know how important it is for parents to feel that questions are answered quickly.
However, in some cases, it may be necessary to make an appointment with a teacher, but we will always try to make this at the earliest available opportunity.
Wherever possible, the Headteacher will be available at short notice, should you want to discuss a matter further.
On very rare occasions, you may feel that your concern needs further attention. In such cases, the Governing Body can be contacted – either through your elected Parent Governors, or by contacting the Chair of Governors, c/o the School Office.
It is our aim that problems are dealt with at teacher, or Headteacher, level and that you, as parents and carers, are satisfied with the service we offer. A copy of the school’s Policy on complaints can be made available on request.
