Parent Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct is an unsigned agreement between Parents, Carers, Visitors and Earl Spencer Primary School.

At Earl Spencer Primary School we are very proud and fortunate to have a very dedicated and supportive school community. At our school the staff, governors, parents and carers all recognise that the education of our children is a partnership.

As a partnership we are all aware of the importance of good working relationships and all recognise the importance of these relationships to equip our children with the necessary skills for their education. For these reasons we will continue to welcome and encourage parents and carers to participate fully in the life of our school.

The purpose of this code of conduct is to provide the expectations around the conduct of all parents, carers and visitors connected to our school.

We are committed to resolving difficulties in a constructive manner, through open and positive dialogue. However, we understand that everyday misunderstandings can cause frustrations and have a negative impact on our relationships. Where issues arise or misconceptions take place, please contact your child’s teacher, the Key Stage lead or the Headteacher, who will be available to meet with you and go through the issue and hopefully resolve it. Where issues remain unresolved, please follow the school’s complaints procedure. This is available on the school website or a copy can be requested from the school office.

This code aims to clarify the types of behaviour that will not be tolerated and seeks parental agreement to these expectations.

 The code of conduct also sets out the actions the school can take should this code be ignored or where breaches occur.

If parents have any concerns about their child in relation to the school they should:

  • Initially contact the class teacher and/or the Key Stage Leader
  • If the concern remains, they should speak to the Headteacher.
  • If still unresolved, contact the school governors through the complaints procedure

 At our school we take our safeguarding responsibilities seriously and will deal with any reported incidents appropriately in line with the actions outlined above.
