Why do we need a Home School Agreement?
- It acts as a reminder of commitments.
- It underpins the school’s ethos and stated beliefs.
- It acts as a clear starting point for new pupils, their parents and the school staff.
- It provides a starting point for exploring difficulties.
The school will aim to:
- treat all children fairly and keep them safe and happy
- provide high quality teaching and support by means of a rich and innovative curriculum, taking account of the children’s individual needs
