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.

Feedback: You asked .... We did.
You asked to meet your child’s new teacher before September. - We have planned an after school session in July where this will take place.
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.
You asked for more regular updates on your is getting on – in addition to the 3 parent meetings we offer and written end of year report, we will now send out brief half-termly updates so that you know how your child is getting on.
You asked for more ideas on how to help your child at home – we have added a dedicated section called ‘Learning Links’ to the Parents tab on the school website with useful guides and links.
Some of you were not sure who the members of the Governing Body were – there is a dedicated tab on our website that lists the names of our school governors. The photo board in reception also has on it the members of our governing body. Governors attend parent consultation evenings and are always contactable via the school office.
