Welcome to
Farmborough Church Primary School

Update for 19.03.18 - we will be open at 10.30am, to allow time for the site to be made safe and for staff to arrive safely. ALL children need to bring a packed lunch. Please be careful when dropping off.

Farmborough Church Primary School is set in the heart of the village, serving the needs of the community and well beyond.

Every child here is valued as an individual, and there is a strong Christian ethos of caring and acceptance, recognising and celebrating each child as unique and special. Every child has the opportunity here to take part and succeed in a wide range of activities.

This school works in partnership with families and with the wider community. Many people choose to volunteer here, and become valued members of our staff team, after careful DBS checks. This enriches the opportunities all our children enjoy.

Do please come and look round our school. This is a school that really cares about each child, working in partnership with parents to ensure that they achieve in every way. Our academic results are extremely good and our pupils make very good progress here. Even more important though, is our commitment to care for your child and to help him or her grow up into a happy and confident young person, able to respond to the challenges of tomorrow.

We have a superb staff team in place, and wonderful children. Read full welcome message...

Working Together, Valuing Everyone, Learning for Life


Welcome to Term 4. Our Christian Value focus for this term is JUSTICE. We are really pleased that the children learnt so much last term from our focus on COURAGE and in particular when reaearching a person of courage of their choice. This leads nicely into thinking about justice, as many of the people that the children focused on were trying to ensure justice and equality for all. In our final assembly of term 3, Caitlin in Squirrels Class gave a fantastic presentation about Emmeline Pankhurst and at the start of term 4, Bailee-May and Betsi from Badgers Class will talk to everyone about a topical issue - that there should be equal pay for women and men.

It's going to be another great term with plenty to look forward to and all rounded off by the annual Talent Show.
