A home-school agreement is a statement explaining the school's aims, values, policies and procedures, its responsibilities towards its pupils, the responsibilities of the pupil's parents, and what's expected of pupils.

At Featherstone Primary School, we recognise each pupil as an individual and aim to give all pupils every opportunity to realise their full potential. We believe that a close partnership between the school, parents and pupils is essential if we are to achieve this aim.

Our home-school agreement aims to encourage consistency, equality and fairness in all matters about the school. This can be done most effectively when all staff, parents and pupils understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals.

We require all parents to agree to the home-school agreement and maintain an awareness that advice from the DfE states that refusal to sign the school’s home-school agreement does not provide an exemption for any pupils from the rules outlined by the school.
