STEP UP...TO SUCCESS
The Home and School Agreement found in every child’s planner, clearly sets out the expectations for pupils, parents and the school in how we can best work together to ensure that our children achieve an exciting, impactful education and enjoy their time at St Margaret’s.
The most important part of this agreement focuses how we can support our children in getting the most from the first part of their learning journey.
This means the best way to achieve success is for all of us to collaborate in supporting our children in their learning and prepare them for the future and their lives beyond St Margaret’s.
We now have access to programs that give our children more opportunities to develop their learning outside the classroom. Parent’s can support their child’s learning by making sure the programs are used regularly at home.
We would like to ask you to consider these three simple steps to support us in ensuring all our pupils are able to…Step Up to Success!
1. Step up ...in reading
2. Step up ...in maths
3. Step up ...with homework
Use our online STEP UP TOOLS. All available from our Learn Online website page.
