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.
  • Follow the school Code of Conduct.
  • Remember that whenever I am wearing the school uniform I am representing our school.
