Participate, excel, take pride!

Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Home-School Agreement

When your child joins our school, you agree to support our working together through this agreement:
We work hard to be a caring school community underpinned by Christian values, where children participate, excel and
take pride in their achievements. 
We will do this for our school community by
Children: Making school fun and preparing you for life in the world you are growing up in.

Parents and carers: Teaching your child in the way that best matches their needs, abilities and interests so that they can achieve, be happy at school, and build relationships with others people.

Staff: Providing support so that you can be fulfilled in your professional role,
continuously developing yourself so that you contribute fully to our shared success.

Community: Celebrating the history of the school, and ensuring we are the hub of the local community.

Governors: We will help children, parents, carers and staff to achieve and excel in our vision for the school.

By working closely together in the following ways, we will ensure a high quality education for your child.  

The Parents / carers will…

  • See that my child arrives at school on time and has the necessary equipment. 
  • Let the school know about any concerns or problems that might affect my child’s work or behaviour;
  • Support the school’s policies and guidelines for behaviour;
  • Support my child with homework and other opportunities for home learning;
  • Attend parents’ evening and discussions about my child’s progress;
  • Endeavour not to take my child on holidays during term time;

Snarestone School will… 

  • Contact parents if there is a problem with attendance, punctuality or equipment;
  • Let parents know about any concerns or problems that may affect their child’s work or behaviour;
  • Towards the end of the summer term, provide parents with an annual written report on their child’s progress;
