Home-School Agreement

We believe that every child has the potential to succeed.  A strong partnership between school, student and family is an essential foundation for this success.  Our aim is to provide a rigorous and broad education so as to help develop well-qualified, self-confident, responsible, healthy and happy citizens, who can make a valuable contribution to their world. In order to achieve this: 

The School will:

  •  Provide the best possible education for every student, based on a broad and balanced curriculum and a varied extra-curricular programme.
  • Treat everyone in the school community appropriately: fostering courtesy, responsibility, tolerance and self-confidence.
  • Set appropriate homework with realistic deadlines and regular planner monitoring.
  • Provide a safe, disciplined, caring, and stimulating environment.
  • Set clear uniform expectations.
  • Establish an effective system of rewards and sanctions.
  • Inform Pupils and Parents about pupil progress, through mentoring, reporting and parents’ evenings.
  • Monitor attendance, encouraging 100% attendance.
  • Make parents and visitors feel welcome in the school.

Students should:

  • Make full use of the opportunities provided by working hard and participating in selected activities.
  • Treat everyone in the school community appropriately; being polite, tolerant, responsible and self-confident.
  • Put their best effort into homeworks, meeting deadlines and using the planner properly.
  • Keep to the Code of Conduct.
  • Keep to the uniform expectations.
  • Behave well and accept the school’s rewards and sanctions.
  • Listen to teachers and others to understand their own progress.
  • Strive for 100% attendance.
  • Help visitors feel welcome in our school.

Parents should:

  • Encourage and support their child’s learning both at school and at home.
  • Treat everyone in the school community appropriately; encouraging courtesy, tolerance, responsibility and self-confidence.
  • Provide a good working environment at home for homework, signing the planner weekly.
  • Support the school’s Code of Conduct.
  • Support the maintenance of high standards of uniform.
  • Expect their child to behave well and support the school’s rewards and sanctions.
  • Respond to reports on progress, attend parents’ evenings and communicate any cause of concern to the school.
  • Ensure that their child attends school whenever possible and notify the school promptly of any absence.
  • Feel welcome in the school, helping us by making appointments if they wish to speak to a member of staff.
