                             HOME-SCHOOL AGREEMENT                     

The ABS Home-School agreement supports the partnership between parents/carers, pupils, and the school staff to ensure that every child reaches their potential.



We will work together to ensure every child in our school achieves their full potential as a child of God and a valued member of the community.

We will do this through

  • A determined focus on teaching and learning
  • A firm belief that the children here can and will achieve as well as and better than children anywhere
  • A commitment to a living faith that unites us in this purpose, recognising and affirming the full diversity of our school community
