Chew Valley Schools working together in Partnership
Chew Valley Schools, Parents and Carers – Working in Partnership Together
The schools of the Chew Valley take pride in the excellent partnership between parents and schools. Our schools are fortunate to have supportive and friendly parents who value a partnership between home and school and understand the importance of good working relationships to equip children with the necessary skills for adulthood. Equally, headteachers and staff recognise the critical importance of harmonious relationships with parents and carers and will do all in their power to enable families to participate fully in the life of our schools.
We expect school staff, parents and carers to show respect and concern for others by working in partnership together, thus creating and maintaining good communication and relationships through:-
- speaking and behaving in a respectful way;
- working to resolve difficulties for the benefit of children in a positive and constructive manner;
- respecting the school’s rules and arrangements as regards such matters as the school environment, health and safety, parking, making and keeping appointments and showing appropriate care of others.
In order to achieve these aims staff and parents will refrain from:
- disruptive or threatening behaviour or language, in person, on the phone or by written
- coming onto the school site whilst smoking or intoxicated by alcohol or drugs.
The schools reserve the right to deny access to school sites and their staff, to persons who contravene these expectations, under Section 547 of the Education Act 1997.
We trust that all members of our school communities support this document and its principles.

As governors of a school which has close links with our local cluster of schools, we support the principles behind this document and its aims to create positive working relationships with parents for the benefit of all children.
All members of our school community have the right be treated courteously and with respect. Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are. ~Author Unknown
