Code of Conduct for Parents’ & Carers

Introduction

At Fred Longworth High 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 alike all recognise that the education of our children is a partnership process between all these parties.

As a partnership we are all aware of the importance of good working relationships and all recognise the importance of solid working relationships to equip all of our students with the necessary skills for adulthood. 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 unsigned policy is to provide a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our school about the expectations around the conduct of all parents and visitors connected to our school. We understand that everyday frustrations can cause misunderstandings and have a negative impact on our relationships. Establishing where this happens, that we remain committed to resolving difficulties in a constructive manor through open positive dialogue is however essential.

In this way, we can continue to flourish and progress to achieve, in an atmosphere of mutual understanding.

Our school already has a code of conduct for all our employees but this code is aimed at the wider school community so that all can see and understand the expectations on the behaviour of all visitors or those connected with the school. The policy aims to clarify the types of behaviour that will not be tolerated and seeks parental buy in to these expectations. The policy also sets out the actions the school can take should this code be ignored or where breaches occur.
