Home-School Agreement 2018-2019

The Home-School Agreement, as detailed below, sets out what parents/carers can expect from us as a school, and what we ask of our children and their families to ensure a collaborative approach to each child's education and their time with us as a whole.

Attend school regularly and on time in my school uniform and bring with me all the things I need each day.

Ensure that my/our child attend school regularly, punctually, properly equipped and having eaten a good breakfast. I will notify the school office of absence.

Show respect for everyone.

I/we will demonstrate respect for and understanding of others to support my/our child’s development.

Permissions

We ask for annual parental permission for some school activities.

 

Please see below for details of what this covers:

 

Photo Permission

As a school we like to do our best to let the local community and parents know what we have been doing and the successes we have enjoyed. In order to do this, pictures of your children may be used for publication in our school newsletter, local media and on our school website.  Children’s names will not be used on the website, but may be used by the local media and in the school newsletter.

 

I agree to my child being photographed/videoed as part of their learning and understand that these images may be used on the School website, or in the local press. My child’s name will NOT accompany any images of them that are published, without additional consent.

 I agree                                                       I do not agree

 

Internet Use

This pertains to the Pupil Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) relating to ICT equipment. New technologies have become integral to the lives of our children, both within our schools’ and in their lives outside. The internet and other digital information and communications technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. These technologies can stimulate discussion, promote creativity, awareness and promote effective learning. All of our children have the entitlement to safe internet access at all times both at school and at home. The Acceptable User Agreement is intended to ensure:

· that ALL pupils will be responsible users and stay safe while using the internet and other communications technologies for educational and recreational use.

· that school ICT systems and users are protected from accidental or deliberate misuse that could put the security of the systems and users at risk.
