Home School Agreement

At The Bishop Wand Church of England School we believe that the success of our students depends on a three way partnership between School, staff, students and parent/carers. We ask you to read and sign the following agreement reflecting this partnership.

This agreement reads as follows:


As a parent / carer I will:

  1. Ensure that my child attends School every day and arrives on time.
  2. Contact the School on the first day of any illness.
  3. Ensure that my child wears the full School uniform.
  4. Check that my child has the correct equipment and books each day.
  5. Ensure the completion of all homework.
  6. Check and sign the planner weekly.
  7. Attend Parents’ Consultation Evenings and discussion meetings.
  8. Notify the School promptly of any change in contact details.
  9. Encourage my child to adopt the highest standards of behaviour in School and on their journey to and from School.
  10. Support the School Behaviour Policy, including my child attending any detentions given.


As a student I will:

  1. Wear the full School uniform correctly and be tidy in appearance.
  2. Attend School every day.
  3. Show respect to staff and other students.
  4. Respect the School environment and local community.
  5. Bring the correct equipment and books to School.
  6. Complete all homework, ensure it is entered into my student planner and that my planner is signed weekly.
  7. Work hard in all lessons and always try to do my best.
  8. Behave well and conduct myself safely.
  9. Participate fully and safely in all practical activities.
  10. Abide by the Code of Conduct and accept any consequences of not doing so.
