11. Home School Agreement

We place the greatest importance on the home/School partnership in order to secure the success of every student.  This means maintaining good communication and proactively promoting student learning.
As a student, to give myself and others the best possible chances of learning at BHCS, I will:

  • attend regularly, on time and properly equipped for work
  • complete all class work and homework as well as possible, and not disrupt the work of others
  • value the resources provided to me, including the internet policy, by using them with care and only in support of my learning
  • respect the views, feelings and needs of others, and comply with all School expectations
  • be polite, supportive and helpful to others
  • wear the correct uniform of the School and keep a tidy appearance
  • show care, responsibility and respect for our School, its equipment and surroundings at all times by keeping the School free from litter and graffiti and respecting its environment and fabric
  • use my planner on a daily basis with care and show it to my parent/guardian(s) and School on a regular basis, at least weekly
  • make sure that letters and messages given to me are passed on promptly

  • take advantage of the opportunities provided by the School’s programme after School enrichment activities
