HOME-SCHOOL AGREEMENT

 

Mission Statement

 

We wish to create a culture of learning, where children are happy, enthusiastic, motivated and ambitious.

We encourage mutual respect, support and collaboration between all adults and children, both within the school and the wider community.

We believe that it is important to provide a secure, caring and stimulating environment for all our children, thereby promoting a sense of pride in our school.

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.

 

Working in Partnership for Success

 

The school will:-

Maintain a high standard of education, keeping in line with national government requirements, within a balanced curriculum.

Care for each child’s safety and well-being.

Endeavour to meet the requirements of children whatever their needs to achieve their full potential.

Ensure that each classroom is a positive and stimulating learning environment.

Set homework to extend the curriculum work in school.

Teach children to develop a positive attitude towards everyone regardless of difference in gender, race, culture, belief, values, age, and need.

Help children to understand their role in the community.

 

Communicate effectively and sensitively with parents:

 

• Regular meetings to discuss the progress of children, indicating strengths and areas for development through individual targets.

• Provide prompt information about behaviour or class work that may be a cause for concern or celebration.

• Provide clear information about homework tasks.

• Provide short training sessions on supporting children at home in specific curriculum areas.

• Provide opportunities for parents to become involved in school life.

• Provide information to parents about school activities through regular newsletters, open days, meetings and the annual report.

• Make available all relevant school policies, for information.

 

The parents/carers will:

 

Make sure that each child arrives at school on time every day and provides a reason for your child’s absence or lateness.

Everyday collect your child after school on time.

Make sure children wear suitable clothing in line with the school’s code of dress and that the PE/games kit is brought to school each week.

Support their children with homework tasks and ensure homework is returned within the set time.

Attend termly consultations with the class teacher.

Support and work with the school in any behaviour management programmes, as outlined in the positive behaviour policy summary.

Work in partnership with the school to develop positive attitudes towards those from different cultures and races and with different feelings, values and beliefs.

Let the school know of any concerns that may affect their children’s work, behaviour or ability to do their homework.

Read and act upon any information sent home.

Encourage other opportunities for home learning.

Support the school in fundraising and other activities.

Foster a positive attitude towards education and the school. Avoid discussing issues or grievances concerning the school in front of children, as these may have a negative effect on their outlook

 

The child will:

 

1. Respect other’s culture, race, feelings, beliefs and values.

2. Accept responsibility for the things they do. Take shared responsibility for their education.

3. Complete their homework to a high quality and return it to school on time.

4. Try to work independently, but ask their peers and adults when help is needed. Do their best in all they undertake and follow the school’s Golden rules:-

• Always aim high, try your best and make good choices.

• Always show respect to each other by being kind, polite, caring and listening to each other.

• Always follow instructions given by any member of staff.

• Always look after our school’s property and other people’s.

• Always play nicely and share.

 

5. Ensure that they will take home all school letters.

 

Together we will:

 

Value one another as partners with our children.

Listen to and support each other in our aim to provide the best education for our children.
