This can only be achieved through partnership with parents and carers, and by students also taking responsibility.
St Edmund’s School undertakes to:
- care for your daughter’s safety and happiness;
- ensure that your daughter achieves her full potential as a valued member of the school community;
- provide a broad and balanced curriculum and meet the individual needs of your daughter;
- ensure high standards of work and behaviour through building good relationships and developing a sense of responsibility;
- keep you informed about general school matters and about your daughter’s progress in particular;
- be open and welcoming at all times and offer opportunities for you to become involved in the daily life of the school;
- enable your daughter to make decisions based on Christian values;
- communicate effectively regarding expectations and goals regarding home learning.
We know that parents and carers will be equally keen to help their daughters achieve.
We ask that parents and carers:
- ensure that their daughter goes to school punctually and is properly equipped;
- inform the school as soon as reasonably possible of any unforeseen absence;
- make the school aware of any concerns or problems that might affect their daughter’s work or behaviour;
- ss policies and guidelines for behaviour and uniform;
- support their daughter in home learning and other opportunities for learning at home;
- attend parents’ meetings and discussions about their daughter’s progress;
- get to know about their daughter’s life at school and respond to communications.
Students are expected to:
- attend school and be punctual;
- bring all the equipment they need every day;
- be wearing the correct school uniform when at school and when travelling to and from school;
- do all their classwork and home learning as well as they can and on time;
- be polite and helpful to others and follow the school’s code of conduct;
- make sure that all information to and from school is personally delivered.
