Home School Agreement

Our Home School Agreement has been put into place to ensure that all the stakeholders at the school – the staff, children and parents – are all moving forwards in the same direction.

The school will… The child will… The parent will…
Start and finish the day promptly Ensure my child attends school on time every day
Follow up on all absences Attend school on time every day Inform the school promptly if my child is unwell
Make every day important for children’s learning Avoid taking my children on holiday during school terms
Provide clear information about activities at school and what children will need Ensure my child wears school uniform, has PE kit as needed and brings his/her book bag to school each day

 

Care for your child’s health, safety and wellbeing Bring all the equipment I need to school every day Stay with my child (up to Year 5) until school starts in the morning
Pass on to parents any issues that may affect a child’s welfare or progress Let the school know of any issues that may affect my child’s welfare or progress

 

Make sure children understand what is expected of them and use rewards and sanctions fairly Listen to what I am asked to do and do my best to keep to school rules Support the school’s policies and guidelines for behaviour
Set an example of high standards of personal behaviour Show respect to my school, my friends and the adults who help me learn
