The following agreement intends to strengthen the collaboration between home and school and support every child in fulfilling their potential.

The family will:

  • Ensure that their child attends regularly, providing an explanation if their child is absent, and avoiding holidays in term time.

  • Ensure that their child makes a reasonable effort to do their homework.

  • Read at home regularly with their child. EYFS/KS1 at least five times a week and KS2 three times a week.

  • Attend Parent/Teacher consultations to discuss their child’s progress in the Autumn and Spring terms.

  • Foster in their children a positive attitude towards learning.
