Home School Agreement






Stoke Primary School has a home school agreement, which you will be asked to sign. It sets out the school’s responsibilities towards its pupils, the responsibilities of the pupil’s parents and what the school expects of its pupils. The purpose is to strengthen the partnership between home and school and makes clear the respective roles and expectations. Please sign and return the declaration overleaf if you accept the agreement (one for every child attending Stoke Primary School).

Yours sincerely,
Matthew Ascroft

Attendance & Punctuality

Good attendance and punctuality is extremely important if your child is going to reach their personal goals. We aim for all children to achieve 95% and above attendance. If your child is unable to attend, it is the  parent’s responsibility to telephone the school on the morning of the first day of absence to let us know.

Since September 2013, Headteacher’s have been unable to authorise any term time absence/holiday for children, except in very exceptional circumstances. If parents wish to apply for leave of absence, they must ask for a form from the school office. Parents should be aware that it is very unlikely that the request will be agreed by the Headteacher and Chair of Governors and that they may be fined up to £60 per parent for each child if they continue with the absence.

A smooth and punctual start to the day is very important for children. The school doors are opened at 8.45am in preparation for the start of the day at 8.55am. If a child arrives at school after this time they must report to the school office where parents are asked to sign them in the late book and give reasons for lateness.

Children who have medical appointments are to be collected by an adult. They will be signed out of school and should return to school as soon as possible after the appointment.

We work closely with parents to devise Healthcare Plans for children with specific medical needs . We also administer prescribed medicine to children who require it in order to support their attendance at school.

Our Learning Mentors will support you if you are experiencing difficulties with your child’s attendance. The Children and Families First Team will contact parents at home in cases of irregular attendance and/or persistent lateness.
