Home School Partnerships

ses_am_242Our aim is that every student is happy at school and reaches her potential not only academically but in every way, thus equipping her for her future life.

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.
