Home School Agreement

 

“Laying a firm foundation”

At Offenham CE First School, we recognise each child as an individual, and aim to give all children every opportunity to realise their full potential.  We believe that a close partnership between the school, parents and the child is essential if we are to achieve this aim.  We therefore ask all parents and children to sign up to our Home/School Agreement.

The Responsibilities of the School

We will:

  • Provide a secure, happy and stimulating learning environment where Christian faith forms the foundation.
  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum which challenges your child to reach their potential and fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum.
  • Encourage your child to show friendship and respect for others and to abide by the school behaviour policy, ensuring a safe, caring environment for all.
  • Keep you informed about your child’s progress and behaviour, as well as their termly curriculum.
  • Set regular and appropriate homework for your child.
  • Make you feel welcome whenever you visit the school and respond to your questions or concerns as quickly as possible.
  • Behave towards all members of our school community with respect being mindful of our VIVs.
  • Allow children safe and secure use of the Internet through a combination of site filtering, supervision and by fostering a responsible attitude in all pupils, in partnership with parents.
