Home School Agreement

Home-School Agreement - Mission Statement

We wish to create a culture of learning where children are happy, enthusiastic, motivated and ambitious and where every child has the opportunity to achieve their own potential.

We encourage mutual respect, support and collaboration between all children and adults, 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 both in ourselves and 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 our home/school agreement.
