Home School Agreement




The document is designed to support all members of the school community to be clear about and fulfil their role in ensuring each child can be ‘the best they can be’ and 'show courtesy, care and kindness' all of the time. To be a safe and effective school for all children, it is important all families fully respect and support all school policies, systems and processes in place.

All members of the school community must confirm agreement with this document in its entirety, and will, if an issue arises, conform fully to its expectations. Where this is not the case parents must communicate this to the Chair of Governors, in writing, stating the concern they have with the Home-School Agreement and stating their reason for not supporting the contents of this document fully:  Enrolment at Chesswood is dependent on parents confirming their agreement.

This is the latest government guidance in relation to Home School agreements.

The statutory guidance is clear with regard to the requirement for a school to develop, consult, publish and enforce a ‘Home-School Agreement’. Underpinning expectations are set out below:

A home-school agreement is a statement explaining:

  • the school’s aims and values;
  • the school’s responsibilities towards its pupils who are of compulsory school age;
  • the responsibility of each pupil’s parents; and
  • what the school expects of its pupils.

All maintained schools, academies, city technologies colleges and city colleges for the technology of the arts are required to publish a home-school agreement and associated parental declaration.

Schools must take reasonable steps to ensure that all registered parents of pupils sign the parental declaration to indicate that they understand and accept the contents of the home-school agreement.
