Home-School Agreement

Our school is committed to working alongside our parents and carers and seek to ensure that this partnership is clearly laid out so both partners have clear guidance and guarantees.

We very much take the view that we work for each child and our relationship with parents and families is to this end. Home and school may not always agree on emphasis and approach, but we both need to respect that we are both working to the same common goal of success, happiness and well-being.
