Parents as Partners We recognise that education is at its most effective when partnerships exists between home and school therefore developing good relationships is very important to us. We have a home school agreement; please see following page. Please read, discuss with your child and sign it to ensure continuity of expectation between home and school. We endeavour to provide quality information to parents about their child’s progress and ask that you inform school of anything, which might contribute to his/her well being. We try to keep parents informed of events in school through whole school and year group newsletters and our website. Please take every opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher and participate fully in the life of our school. We appreciate the support parents give their children in their learning and help with activities, visits etc during the year. If you feel you can contribute to school life in any way please make your interest known to the staff . Anyone working with children on a regular basis will need to agree to an enhanced DBS check. Homework Homework is seen as an opportunity for children to practise and consolidate the skills learnt or to research information in preparation for work in school and to involve parents in working alongside their child to build a be er picture of his/her strengths and progress. Homework may be in the form of reading a book, a maths game, spellings to learn, maths facts to rehearse, a worksheet or a formal piece of writing. As your child progresses through school the amount and nature of the work will change in line with their needs and the curriculum. In Key Stage 1 children have homework set weekly in their designated homework book, and in Foundation Stage they display an overview of the work they are doing, on the noticeboard outside the classroom; homework tasks will be set in line with this. In Key Stage 2 children are responsible for bringing the work home in their designate homework book . At the beginning of each new school year, the class teacher will indicate how and when home work will be set. This is flexible to suit different classroom routines and timetables. Asking your child to explain his work is a very good way of extending their understanding. Home School Agreement As a parent I aim to:
