Home School Agreement 

The Governing Body and Staff believe that working in partnership with families is crucial to both the happiness and outcomes of our pupils. We use this Home School Contract to ensure all involved are clear about their responsibilities and expectations.

 

Together we will provide the best conditions for all children to learn and to feel safe and valued.

The school will:

  • provide equal opportunities for all pupils
  • provide for pupils’ learning, welfare, health and safety
  • provide a broad and relevant curriculum
  • ensure that all pupils are given every opportunity to make the best possible progress
  • create the conditions for pupils to be motivated, involved in their learning and feel proud of their achievements
  • develop pupils’ independence, social skills and successful learning skills
  • provide home learning at regular intervals
  • provide opportunities for parents to gain further understanding of the curriculum and their child’s learning and progress
  • be open and welcoming, and listen and respond to parents’ queries or concerns
  • continue to make sure that the school is as good as it can be

Parent/s or carer/s will:

  • bring my child to school every day and on time
  • provide a reason for my child’s absence before 9.30am
  • keep the school informed of any changes to emergency contact numbers

  • make sure the school book bag with reading book is in school every day
  • support my child with their home learning, including reading

  • welcome support from external services that will help my child to achieve
  • show respect towards other adults and children who belong to the school community

  • be polite and helpful towards others and look after my own and others’ safety
  • behave well so that the teacher can teach, I can learn and others can learn
  • ask for help when it is needed but think for myself and have a go first when I can
