PARTNERSHIP IN EDUCATION
We are required to publish a Home – School Agreement and to invite parents and carers of pupils of statutory school age who are registered with the school to sign a declaration of support. We believe that as pupils move into Class 3 they personally should take responsibility for their behaviour in school and towards others; therefore we ask pupils to sign a further agreement alongside their parents or carers, as they move into Year 4.
The Home-School agreement is a statement explaining:
• Our Aims and Vision
• Our responsibility towards parents and carers
• Your responsibility as a parent/carer in respect to your child’s education
• What we expect of our pupils
We send agreements to all pupils in Reception and Year 4.
We will keep a copy of the signed agreement on your child’s school file.
AIMS OF THE HOME – SCHOOL AGREEMENT
We recognise that parents and carers are a child’s first and enduring teacher. You play a crucial role in helping your children to learn. Research shows that pupils will be more successful in their learning when schools and parents work together. A parent partnership is more effective when parents know what it is the school is trying to achieve and how they can help. The aim of the Home-School Agreement is to provide a framework supporting the growth of our partnership.
We attach a great importance to the regular and punctual attendance of school by our pupils; this Home- School Agreement is an additional means of supporting regular attendance.
Our agreement has been drawn up after consultation with parents, staff, pupils and governors.
