This policy takes account of the views of pupils, parents/carers and staff which were gathered as part of a consultation exercise in 2013. All members of staff have had the opportunity to discuss the policy and guidelines in draft form and contribute to the final version
At Bloxham C of E Primary School we recognise the vital role parents play in the education of their children. All evidence shows that children progress more effectively with a strong home-school partnership. We strongly believe in the value of home-school partnership, of which our home learning policy is an important element.
