Rights Respecting Schools - Article of the Week Learning Packs

Please encourage your children to work through the packs as part of their distance learning during the period of school closure.

Draft Parents, Carers and Visitors Behaviour Policy

We believe that our school is a friendly and welcoming place where our children and staff can feel safe.

Unfortunately, experience in schools around the County is that instances of aggressive and inappropriate behaviour by parents and carers are increasing.

All North Yorkshire schools have been asked to consult parents on a new policy related to parent /carer behaviour in school. This has been put together by the Local Authority’s legal team in order to safeguard staff and to ensure that all parents are setting the correct example to the children whilst on the school premises.
