Home School Agreement

 

All schools are required to have a written home school agreement in place. 
The aim is to help raise standard and contribute to school effectiveness by enhancing the partnership between the school and parents.  The agreement sets out the role of school, parents and pupils in daily school life.
At Hart Plain Junior School our home school agreement is:
 

Our school values:
