Home – School Agreement

The Home School Agreement is a legally required document and its aim is to clarify the roles and responsibilities of students, parents, staff and governing body so that every student is able to realise their full potential.

It aims to ensure that students and parents are fully aware of the school’s aims and values, work together on issues of concern and enables effective home/school communication. Parents, students and the Tutor (on behalf of all staff) are requested to sign the agreement printed in the Student Planner when the student joins Stokesley School for the first time, indicating their acceptance of this agreement.
