Farmborough Church Primary School
Update, 22.03.20 on school closure for majority of children and childcare provision for children whose parents/carers are critical workers.
We are currently in the process of organising childcare places at school for families who have critical workers. This is taking longer than anticipated, as there are a lot of people to communicate with. We have to balance the needs of families with the staff available and try to ensure safety for all at school. There is currently no government guidance on this, so please bear with us as we try and work through to achieve the best for everyone. We want to keep the provision going for as long as possible to ensure key workers are able to support the community.
Confirmation of all places for the w/b 23.03.20 will be done asap and by the end of today at the latest. We will do our best to accommodate children for all of the days requested, but please be aware that it may not be possible to have every day that is asked for, as we need to limit numbers to maximise safety at school, as best we can.
If you have any queries, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Best wishes to everyone. Please take care and observe social distancing.

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...
