Home School Agreement

The purpose of the Home-School Agreement is to strengthen the partnership between parents/carers and school to maximise children’s learning, happiness, confidence, self esteem and well being. We believe that by working together we can create the right environment for all pupils, which allows them to develop in the way and at a pace appropriate to their individual needs. This will ultimately result in them feeling supported, encouraged and valued leading to success.
