Home School Agreement
What is the Home-School Agreement? An agreement
drawn up with parents, LA, Governors and
Diocese Why do we have a Home School
Agreement? We want to work in partnership with
parents. It is a legal requirement of all schools.
Why are we asking parents to sign it? So the
school can work with parents and children. An
opportunity to discuss with your child, at the
start of the school year about expectations,
uniform, homework, behaviour
Relevant year groups will also receive an
e-safety code of conduct to re-sign too.
