Policies and Procedures

Parent/Carer Code of Conduct

Parent and Carer Code of Conduct

At Fairfax Multi-Academy Trust we are very fortunate to have a supportive and friendly parent/carer body. Our parents/carers recognise that educating children is a process that involves partnership between parents/carers, class teachers and the school community. As a partnership, our parents/carers will understand the importance of a good working relationship to equip children with the necessary skills for adulthood. For these reasons we continue to welcome and encourage parents/carers to participate fully in the life of our Trust Schools.

The purpose of this policy is to provide a reminder to all parents/carers and visitors to our schools about the expected conduct.

Guidance

Our core values as a Multi-Academy Trust are:

With these values in mind, we expect parents/carers to respect the caring ethos of our schools by:

In order to support a peaceful and safe school environment the schools in the Fairfax Multi-Academy Trust cannot tolerate parents/carers and visitors exhibiting the following:

Should any of the above behaviour occur on Trust School premises the Trust School may feel it is necessary to contact the appropriate authorities and if necessary, ban the offending adult from entering the school grounds.

We trust that parents/carers will assist our Trust Schools with the implementation of this policy and we thank you for your continuing support of the school.

Inappropriate use of Social Network Sites

Social media websites can sometimes be used to fuel campaigns and complaints against schools, the Head of Academy, school staff, and in some cases other parents/carers/students.  The Board of Directors considers the use of social media websites in this way as unacceptable and not in the best interests of the students or the whole school community.

In serious cases the Trust School will also consider taking advice as to its other options in dealing with any such misuse of social networking and other sites.

Any concerns you may have about any of our Trust Schools must be made through the appropriate channels by speaking to the class teacher, the Head of Academy or the Chair of the Academy Association, so they can be dealt with fairly, appropriately and effectively for all concerned.

We would expect that parents/carers would make all persons responsible for collecting children aware of this policy.
