Home-School Agreement

St Oswald’s CE Primary School Home-School Agreement


It is our aim that St Oswald’s Primary School will be a place where:

Everyone is valued and all relationships are based on trust, respect, equality and celebration of diversity

Everyone has opportunities to develop, achieve and contribute in different ways to be the best they can be

Everyone is encouraged to take responsibility for themselves, for each other and for our world

Everything we do contributes to children’s personal, spiritual, moral and cultural development

Children are happy and confident and play a valued role in their local community


Our Home School Agreement sets out how the school, parents and pupils will work in partnership to achieve this.


The School will:

  • work to ensure that all pupils feel safe and happy in school
  • operate an ‘open door policy’ for parents
  • contact parents if there is a problem with attendance, punctuality or equipment
  • let parents know about any concerns about their child’s work, behaviour or wellbeing
  • encourage children to do their best at all times
  • encourage children to take care of their surroundings and others around them
  • keep parents informed about their children’s progress through Parents’ Evenings and end of year School Reports
  • keep parents informed about school activities through regular newsletters and notices
  • consult parents and pupils about school policies and procedures when appropriate


The Parent/Carer will:

  • see that my child goes to school on time and properly equipped
  • ensure that my child follows the school’s uniform policy
  • let the school know about any concerns or problems that might affect my child’s work or behaviour
  • support the school’s policies and guidelines on behaviour and attendance
  • support my child in homework and other opportunities for home learning
  • attend parents’ evenings and discussions about my child’s progress


The Pupil will:

  • arrive at school on time
  • bring all the equipment I need every day
  • do all my class work and homework as well as I can
  • be polite and helpful to others
  • concentrate in lessons and behave sensibly in school to help me to learn
  • treat other pupils and school property with respect
