Home School Agreement

The Home School Agreement is a partnership between school, home and pupils.  It outlines the expectations of us all in working together to provide the best education for every child at The Oaks.


Due to COVID, we have changed some of the expectations to be in line with the Government guidance and our Risk Assessment.  This is imperative to ensure that we keep everyone safe.  Below is the updated Home School Agreement for 2020-2021 outlining the current expectations.
