For Parents and Carers

Home School agreement

Here at Bracken Edge, we believe that education is a partnership between home and school with everyone having a part to play in ensuring the best possible outcomes for our children. Because of this we ask everyone involved to sign the home/school agreement, detailed below.


School

The school will:

  • Ensure your child’s physical and social well being during the statutory school day (8:55-3:15)* , and at all times endeavour to foster feelings of confidence, self-worth and belonging.
  • Deliver a balanced and carefully planned curriculum which meets the needs of your individual child.
  • Provide a range of after school extracurricular activities designed to enrich your child’s experience.
  • Ensure that all homework tasks are given regularly on an agreed day, and that they reflect your child’s learning needs.
  • Actively welcome parents/carers into the life of the school and  ensure that teaching staff are always available, by mutual arrangement, to discuss any concerns you might have about your child’s progress or general welfare.
  • Keep you informed about the school’s policies and guidelines on behaviour and equal opportunities, other general school matters and about your child’s progress in particular
  • Ensure that all teaching staff keep up to date on  important educational developments and initiatives which might affect your child, and to inform you of these at given meetings where appropriate.

*Please note that although we usually have staff present on the playground from 8:30,  your child remains your responsibility until 08:55.
