At Sir Robert Geffery’s School, we are very fortunate to have a supportive and friendly parent body. Our parents recognise that educating children is a process that involves partnership between parents, class teachers and the school community.
As a partnership, our parents will understand the importance of a good working relationship to equip children with the necessary skills for adulthood. For these reasons we continue to welcome and encourage parents/carers to participate fully in the life of our school.
When a family first joins us here at school, we ask parents to sign a simple Home School Agreement that supports our positive working together from the outset. We also have a Parent Code of Conduct Policy, the purpose of which is to provide a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our school about the expected conduct. This is so we can continue to flourish, progress and achieve in an atmosphere of mutual understanding.
At Sir Robert Geffery’s School, we ensure that through our school vision, values, rules, diverse curriculum and teaching we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles. The governing body also ensures that this ethos is reflected and implemented effectively in school policy and practice and that there are effective risk assessments in place to safeguard and promote students’ welfare.
We have a duty to prepare our children for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe.
Pupils who attend our school have the right to learn in safety. We do not tolerate bullying of any kind and will challenge derogatory language and behaviour towards others.
As well as following the guidance set out in our Home-School Agreement, we expect parents, carers and visitors to:
Please note that the school cannot tolerate parents, carers and visitors exhibiting the following:
Should any of the above behaviour occur on school premises, the school may feel it is necessary to contact the appropriate authorities and, if necessary, even ban the offending adult from entering the school grounds. Obviously, this is something that we do our best to avoid. We would expect that parents would make all persons responsible for collecting children aware of this guidance.
We trust that parents and carers will assist our school with the implementation of this policy and guidance and we thank you for your continuing support of the school.
