LIVE- Home School Agreement

Co-op Academy Glebe

Home School Agreement

A Home School Agreement is a statement explaining your child's 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 Co-op Academy Glebe, we recognise each child as an individual, and aim to give all children every opportunity to realise their full potential. We believe that a close partnership between the school, parents and the child is essential if we are to achieve this aim.

It is therefore an expectation that all parents who wish their children to attend Co-op Academy Glebe will sign up to our Home School Agreement.

We also ask parents to ensure they share the Home School Agreement with their child and we will also discuss this in school.
