Home-School Contract (CES)

Among a number of the new duties imposed upon all schools, including Catholic schools, brought about as a result of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 is the requirement that 'Home-School' Agreements be put in place by September 1999.

Herein, we set out both guidance and model examples which we trust will be of assistance to headteachers and governors. We acknowledge, with gratitude, the Schools Commissions of the Archdiocese of Birmingham and the Diocese of Hallam who were jointly responsible for this welcome publication.
