School Agreement

The Home-School Agreement is a way of helping us to work together to provide your child with the very best educational opportunities.

The agreement spells out the school's commitment to you and your responsibilities as a parent. It will also tell you what we expect of our students.

Parents, children and an Osmaston Primary School representative will each sign the agreement when your child starts at the school.
