Home School Agreement

Our Mission Statement for our Children

We wish to create a culture of learning, where children are happy, enthusiastic, motivated and ambitious.

We encourage mutual respect, support and collaboration between all adults and children, both within the school and the wider community.

We believe that it is important to provide a secure, caring and stimulating environment for all our children, thereby promoting a sense of pride in our school.

This can be done most effectively when all staff, parents and children understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals, as detailed in this Home-School Agreement.

The school will:

  • Maintain a high standard of education, keeping in line with national government requirements within a well-balanced curriculum.
  • Care for each child’s safety and well-being.
  • Endeavour to meet the requirements of children whatever their needs to achieve their full potential.
  • Ensure that each classroom is a positive and stimulating learning environment.
  • Set homework to extend the curriculum work in school.
  • Teach children to develop a positive attitude towards everyone regardless of difference in gender, race, culture, belief, values, age, and need.
