Home School Agreement
Lowton J and I School has a home school agreement, which you will be asked to sign. It sets out the school’s responsibilities towards its pupils, the responsibilities of the pupil’s parents and what the school expects of its pupils.
The aim is to strengthen the partnership between home and school and makes clear the respective roles and expectations.
