Do I Have To Sign A Home School Agreement

Research has shown time and time again that the active interest of parents makes a big difference in the well-being of children in school. Parents can help more effectively if they know what the school is trying to do and what they can do to provide support. Home school agreements provide a framework for the development of such a partnership. The content of the agreement will clarify what the school is trying to achieve and the agreement will expose the role of the school, parents and students in this important partnership. I admit the political thing is a little strange, but in general, I would sign it, certainly that means that the school is a little more responsible if they don`t hold their share? or am I naïve? I usually sign it, I don`t have a problem with that. I think it`s my DC shoes that school and housework to gather as a team, in theory anyway. And that there are responsibilities in all respects that go both ways! But I think if you feel strong, you`re right not to sign. Looks like you`re having problems with school that I don`t really have. And not signing it would give the impression that you`re probably difficult or that you don`t support school, which isn`t necessarily a good plan. So there is a hope that all parents who wish to visit their children at the Silver End Academy will sign our contract at home. Negotiate fair codes of conduct and school rules with children that develop friendship and respect for others and respect school behaviour and consistent policy.

The agreement is also an opportunity to remind parents that they are legally responsible for obtaining a full-time education for their children and that this requires regular participation. The agreement describes how parents should inform the school when their child cannot attend school, as well as the expectation that parents will work with the school in case of attendance problems. My ds (just 4) is expected to sign that he will “wear his uniform with pride” – not a concept he will have. But my main objection is that we have to say that we are going to “support the school in all its policies” – what we can and cannot do. I also object to the assumption that the DC and ourselves, in general, will act as antisocial disruptors if we do not sign the treaty. Oh, and shouldn`t the school do everything they say in the contract, even if we were horrible? (what we don`t do) For me, it`s a symptom that the school (and therefore the state) doesn`t trust us to do the right thing with our children. I hated myself in the playground after not signing the photo and internet games. It was a bit like we didn`t “voluntarily give” them for the trip, but I didn`t sign up again this year (3rd child start) I have no problem with families who don`t argue that their child sign up for education (although they`re not enforceable, in that sense too, it`s a waste of time). Schools have legal obligations anyway that hold them to account.
