Home School Partnerships

At HBH we believe that children benefit tremendously when you help them bridge their two most important worlds.

School and Home

As a parent, you are the major provider of your child's education from birth through adolescence.

You guide the development of her character and mental health and help form the foundation from which she'll develop lifelong attitudes and interests. And because your home is the primary environment in which your child's potential and personality will take shape, it's important to make sure that you create a positive, open atmosphere that will not only support what goes on in the classroom, but will also instill the desire to learn.

It is through your love and encouragement that your kids will become motivated — first to please you, and then to please themselves. This leads to self-confidence, curiosity, the enjoyment of mastering new tasks, and other healthy attitudes, all of which contribute to successful learning.

At HBH our inclusion team work hard to build these relationships so that we can work hard to support you and your child through their school career.

Home School Agreement

When your child becomes a member of HBH Academy, you too, as parents and carers, become part of our academy community.

We regard it as a privilege to share with you the life and development of your child. Education is a shared enterprise in which the children, their families and the school participate. A positive relationship between home and school enhances a child’s attitude to learning, behaviour and motivation. We seek to encourage a shared commitment to the success of each individual by involving parents and carers as fully as possible in the life and work of HBH Academy.

Core values underpin the day-to-day life at HBH Academy.

• Respect yourself
• Respect Others
• Respect the Environment

Both the staff and the pupils follow these values in order to make HBH Academy the fabulous place it is.
