Home School Agreement

At the beginning of each new school year we ask parents/carers and children to sign a home school agreement. This agreement states what you, as a parent/carer, can expect from the school and what we, as a school, expect from you and your child. To view a copy of the current Home School Agreement please see below.


The Friends of Browick Road Primary and Nursery School

The Friends are an active and flourishing group of parents who support the school through organising fundraising and social events. Each year they organise the summer and Christmas Fairs and other social events such as quiz nights, children’s fashion shows and book fairs. They also organise the online school uniform ordering system.

Money raised from the Friends enables the school to buy many valuable extras, such as ipads, hexagonal seats around the trees on the field, outdoor play resources and curriculum discovery days. School Council also work with the Friends on fundraising events and approach the Friends with requests for extra resources in school.

The Friends also support and subsidise special events such as Maths Mind Mission Day, the Christmas entertainment and theatre trips.

New members are very welcome on the Friends committee. Please see the big noticeboard on the playground for dates of the next meeting and come along. If you are new to the area, it’s also a great way of making new friends.

Code of Conduct for Meetings and Phone Calls

Meetings:

In all public services there is an expectation of conduct which promotes good communication and understanding between all parties.

Please help us to help you by:

  • Calling in or telephoning to make an appointment
  • Informing the school of what the meeting is about
  • Bringing some notes to ensure you raise all the points you want to share and discuss
  • Being prepared to listen in return
  • Remembering there are two sides to every situation.We understand how distressing it is if your child is upset, but like us, you model to your child how to approach difficult situations throughout life.

Phone calls:

In all public services there is an expectation of conduct which promotes good communication and understanding between all parties.

Please help us to help you by:

  • Understanding that you may not be able to speak to the person requested immediately as staff maybe teaching or carrying out other responsibilities at that time
  • Having some notes ready to ensure you raise all the points you want to share or discuss
  • Speaking calmly, avoiding personal comments or sweeping judgments.
  • Being prepared to listen in return.We understand how distressing it is if your child is upset, but like us, you model to your child how to approach difficult situations throughout life.

Please note that any rude, offensive or threatening verbal or physical behaviour will result in the termination of the meeting or telephone call and may result in the individual being refused access to the school without prior arrangement with the Headteacher or the Governing Board.


Munch Bunch

At Browick we do a lot of work on food in School. Munch Bunch is a group of parents (from Friends), staff and our catering contractor who organise activities on healthy eating. Each term they organise family food workshops with families and children which are supported by local businesses.

We have a fabulous allotment at Browick developed with the practical help from the Royal Horticultural Society. All children garden as part of our curriculum. They spend time in the allotment learning how to grow a range of things and if there’s not space in the allotment you will see potato pots, or tomato bags tucked in discreet places next to classrooms. The best thing about growing the food is eating it afterwards!
