Home School Agreement
‘Partners in Learning’
Each child has an entitlement to the highest quality of education.
We will therefore offer enriching opportunities to help your child develop and grow and to learn the skills they will need when they leave the school.
Learning at The Cedar School should be appropriate, fun and stimulating, well planned and delivered expertly.
To support this aim we hope to encourage a positive supportive partnership between home and school to ensure your child’s academic and holistic success.
The school will:
- Keep your child safe and promote his/her well being
- Promote high standards of work and behaviour, providing clear guidelines for parents, carers and pupils
- Listen to children and show them respect
- Provide learning activities and experiences during the school day that will challenge and excite and ensure positive learning progress
- Balance academic success with opportunities to achieve in sports, the Arts and learning within the community
- Help to ensure the decisions you and your child make about the future are well judged making the most of his/her skills and interests
- Keep you well informed about school matters, in particular your child’s progress
- Assist you to help your child make the best of his/her time in school
Be open and welcoming and offer you opportunities to become involved in the life of the school
