Home School Agreement

I know my child is well supported and teachers always listen to my concerns.







The phonic and maths workshops gave me the confidence and understanding to help my child.

Children will get the most out of their education when we all work together on every issue. The school seeks to work in partnership with families to support pupils, which means that both school and home have to develop good communication links. Please let us know about anything that might affect your child - we might be able to help. If parents/carers have any comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher, in the first instance, or a member of the Senior Leadership Team.



This agreement sets out the partnership between John of Gaunt and its parents, working together to enable the children to feel happy and secure and to reach their full potential.

John of Gaunt Infant and Nursery School:

We will do our best to:-

  • Work towards every child achieving their best as a valued member of the school community.
  • Care for your child’s safety and happiness.
  • Provide a caring, nurturing environment that fosters a love of learning.
  • Foster positive working relationships; ensuring individuals’ rights, but also establishing shared responsibilities.
  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum.

  • Maintain excellent standards of work and behaviour.

  • Inform the school of any reason for absence in writing, by telephone or in person.
  • Inform the school immediately if contact details change (phone numbers, moved house etc.)
  • Support the school in achieving its targets for good attendance.
  • Keep the school informed about any worries or problems that might affect my child’s work or behaviour.
