Home/School Partnership for Watergate School.

September 2016

We believe your child has the right to the very best education.

Teachers and parents share responsibility for the education of children. In partnership we can work together to ensure that your child will achieve, and have full access to the extended curriculum on offer.

This partnership agreement sets out the way in which we, the school and you the parents, can work together.

For the school we will:-

  • encourage children to do their best at all times.
  • provide a full and balanced curriculum for all pupils.
  • keep records of your child’s educational progress, provide a full report for the annual review and maintain termly updates of achievement.
