Home School Agreement

Our Aim

Our aim is to work constantly to provide excellence for every student. With a highly-trained, specialised team, we will support each student’s individual needs, particularly focusing on those students with mental-health issues, needing a safe, but aspirational, environment to recapture an often lost passion for learning and creativity. We will be pioneering in our approach to whole-school emotional intelligence coaching and support, working closely in tune with Parents/Carers, CAMHS and other relevant agencies. Our aim is to offer a holistic and individualised education for each of our students.

Purpose

All schools and academies have a Home-School Agreement. The purpose of this agreement is to set out, in broad terms how students, parents and the academy should work together to ensure that every student has the opportunities to achieve the highest levels of attainment possible. Academy students and parents are all asked to sign this document to demonstrate that they endorse the general principles that are set out within it and to show how we all work together for the educational benefit of your child.
