St Luke's Agreement

A successful partnership between home and school helps children enjoy and achieve. Please read the agreement carefully with your child.

ALL Together we will promote high standards of teaching and learning and behaviours. All areas of school life will be underpinned by our Christian values and we will actively encourage our positive behaviours for learning.

Pupils – To help me do well at school I will:

  1. Be resilient, work hard and always try your best.
  2. Reflect on what you have learnt and think of ways to improve it next time.
  3. Be a ready learner.
  4. Display a growth mindset and never be afraid to make mistakes.
  5. Show tolerance of those of different cultures and faiths, being polite and respectful.
  6. Be honest.
  7. Take care of our school environment and the equipment we use.
  8. Behave sensibly and responsibly online.
  9. Embrace all the school has to offer – get involved in clubs, activities and events.
  10. Uphold our school’s character virtues in all, that you do.
  11. Help to keep yourself and others safe.
  12. Be proud of the achievements of others and celebrate their success.
  13. Understand that bullying is not tolerated.

Parents – To help my child at school, I will do my best to:

  1. Listen to your child read at home.
  2. Encourage children to recognise the importance of education and learning, and support their work in school and at home.
  3. Support the school’s behaviour policy and its system of incentives, rewards and sanctions and the school’s policies on inclusion and anti-bullying.
  4. Respect and support all staff, pupils and members of the school community, abiding by the policy of zero tolerance towards rude and aggressive behaviour.
  5. Direct any complaints or concerns through the school’s official channels, so they can be dealt with in line with school policies and procedures.
  6. Not use private groups or social media to complain, criticise or post defamatory comments about the school or members of staff or try to resolve or complain about a behaviour issue involving other pupils (this is not constructive and the school cannot improve or address issues if they are not raised in an appropriate way).
  7. Help keep the school environment safe. For example: keeping dogs out; reporting any issues that might be considered to put the children’s health and safety at risk; not smoking on the school site; not being on mobile phones when collecting children.
  8. Ensure that you and your child use digital technology in an appropriate way that maximises the benefits of the technology but does not place them or others in the school community at risk.
  9. Send your child to school in the correct uniform clearly labelled.
  10. Encourage good attendance, but keep your child at home when they are unwell and inform the school (by 9:10am).
  11. Read all school communications, reply to letters / permission slips, attend regular parent consultation evenings and support extra-curricular activities and events.
  12. Take on board advice from teachers and act upon recommendations for learning at home.
  13. Ensure that children are brought to and collected from school on time and to inform the teacher of any change of routine.
  14. Contact your child’s teachers if you are worried about any aspect of school life.
  15. Ensure that contact and personal details are correct and up-to-date.
  16. Provide the school with consent for their child to be photographed or withdraw that consent.
  17. Provide your children with a healthy breakfast, packed lunch and snacks, where applicable.
