Home-School Agreement

When children join Phoenix Community Primary School, we ask parents to sign our home-school agreement.

This clearly sets out what you can expect from the school and what we ask for, in order to ensure that your children are happy and learning.

 

The Ethos of the School

We recognise pupils as unique individuals with specific talents and needs. We offer our pupils a varied and engaging curriculum which is provided by a dedicated team of enthusiastic and hard-working teachers and support staff. You’ll find our classrooms are hives of activity, full of learning and enquiry. The happiness and success of every child is central to our school’s work. Promoting high levels of achievement in all aspects of a child’s development is important to us, and is reflected in all we do.

We continuously work hard to develop what we do, and aspire to being a learning community that educates and nurtures young minds. We want our pupils to think independently, be resourceful, solve problems, and communicate well. A successful school relies on partnership and understanding with parents and the community that it serves.
