Parent Partnership

Your views count!
Your views are important to us. Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child's school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.

Home School Agreement
A Home-School Agreement has been implemented at the our school. Children achieve more when schools and parents work together.  Parents can help more effectively if they know what the school is trying to achieve and how they can help. The Home-School Agreement is designed to provide a framework for the development of such a partnership and sets out the role of the school, parents and pupils in this vital partnership. Parents will be invited to sign this when their children are admitted.

 We are always grateful to receive feedback from parents and thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey. Below are some of the comments about what you thought we do well at Farcet:

“The welfare and safety of the children.”

“Our daughter really enjoys school life. She is settled, speaks positively about school and the whole experience.”

“Friendly and welcoming – all the staff work very hard to make our children feel safe and secure. They come home talking about their day.”

“The teachers are all approachable with any concerns.”

"Supporting and involving children." "Keep doing what you are doing. My children are very happy and will often come home excited about what they have done at school." "Connection and communication with parents.”

Feedback:  You asked .... We did.

 

You asked for further communication from school - these are the current ways school communicates with families and shares information on how your child is doing; weekly newsletter (emailed and available on school website), curriculum overviews for the year and term available on the school website, progress and attendance updates sent home half termly, 3 parent consultations opportunities during the year, a full school report in July, regular Facebook and Twitter updates. This year, we have introduced termly celebrations of learning so that children are able to share their learning with you regularly. Please take a look at our school website as it is regularly updated with content.

You asked for more outdoor activities for children – we have increased our sports coaching at lunchtime to 3 times a week so that children can access activities during the lunch break, each KS2 child completes a daily mile circuit, EYFS pupils have continuous access to outdoor learning, each class works on the reflection garden on a rota basis. We are looking to increase our use of the den area and would like to fundraise for an outdoor classroom.

You asked for more competitive sports – we will be taking part in a number of competitive events with our cluster during the year including a gymnastics competition, multi-skills event, tri golf and athletics.

You asked for more fund raising events - these are planned for the year but we need volunteers to join our school Friends of Farcet School committee to help with these. Please contact the school office if you are able to help.

Feedback

 

13% of families were not sure that their child has a good knowledge and understanding of other world faiths – information on the faiths studied in each year group are available in the RE section of the school website. We follow the Cambridgeshire agreed syllabus which ensures that children study world faiths as well as Christianity. You can also find a gallery of work with examples of RE work from the children’s studies of other faiths on this page.
