Home School Agreement

Chesham Bois CE School


Our Home:School Agreement


We place the child at the centre of all we do. We welcome all children and families. Our work is driven and inspired by our Christian Values which are lived out on a daily basis by children and adults. Our caring, nurturing learning environment enables all children to achieve together.

Matthew 19.14

“Let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them, because this kingdom of heaven belongs to children like these.”

Together we believe, achieve and care.


We believe that a close partnership between the school, parents and the child is essential to support our vision and live out our core values of; Love, Aspiration, Respect, Integrity, Thankfulness and Resilience.  We therefore ask all parents to sign up to our Home:School Agreement.

I will try my best to:

  • Come to school every day and be on time – unless I am very poorly.


  • Be respectful towards others and behave in a safe and responsible way, taking care of the school and everyone’s property.


  • Be resilient, work hard and be independent in my learning. Do all class work and homework as well as I can, asking questions when I don’t understand.


  • Show CARE by making the right choices, appreciate and be thankful, reflect on my actions and the world around me and engage in my learning and opportunities.


  • Act with integrity; being honest and thankful.


  • Use the Internet safely; as I have been taught in class.


  • Show love to others and have faith in myself.
