Home-School Agreement

At the start of each academic year, you will be asked to sign a Home-School Agreement.

This agreement is a three way contract between the school, yourself as your child’s guardian and your child.  It outlines the responsibilities that all three parties have and the way they will work together for the educational, spiritual and emotional benefit of your child whilst they are a pupil at St Thomas More Catholic Primary School.

A copy of the Home-School Agreement is available for you to view Home School Agreement

Absence in term time

The Government has set a target of 95% minimum attendance for every child each academic year, amounting to 180 days school attendance out of the 190 days that the school is open. This includes absences for sickness.

Parents do not have the right to take children out of school for a holiday during term time.  As from 1st September 2013, in accordance with amendments to The Education Regulations 2006, term time holidays will not be authorised by the Head Teacher and holidays taken within term time will be classed as an unauthorised absence.  Unauthorised absence could result in a penalty notice being issued by the Education Entitlement and Inclusion team of the Local Authority. This could be up to £1000 per child.
