Home School Agreement

At Manston Primary we firmly believe that our pupils will become the best versions of themselves when school and home work in partnership.

The development of a positive relationship between home and school is a hugely important factor in any pupil’s wellbeing and development. We have set out this home school agreement to share expectations of ourselves, you as parents \ carers and the pupils themselves.


By choosing to send your child to Manston Primary you are agreeing to the bullet points set out for parents and carers and to support your child to achieve the points in their section.
