You will have read and signed this agreement. It is an important document as it sets out what can be expected of all three parties to the agreement: you, your child and school. We work hard to ensure that we do provide what we state on the agreement. However if at any time you feel that this is not the case, then please contact the school to let us know. Equally we would ask that you support the agreement as it relates to you as a parent/carer. We do believe the partnership is important and forms part of our shared commitment.
