KeyDoc - behaviour letters to parents

This template is from our model behaviour policy and is suitable for both primary and secondary schools

It includes 3 letters you can send to inform parents about their child's poor behaviour:

  • The first letter asks the parent to discuss their child's behaviour with the child
  • The second asks the parent to arrange a meeting with the teacher
  • The third invites the parent to discuss their child's behaviour with the headteacher, special educational needs co-ordinator and class teacher
