Family-School Partnerships

'Shared responsibility for the education of pupils here at Horsenden, both at home and at school.'

We were recently awarded the EFSP Award (Ealing Family School Partnership) for successful completion of the programme run by Ealing’s Extended Services Team.

  Parent Forum

Our Parent Forum sessions are a way of involving parents in school life. Giving parent/ carers a recognised role in helping the governing board to make informed decisions. The sessions are open to any parent or carer in the school and is aimed at helping parents understand more about what is happening at the school and the progress we are making towards achieving our objectives as well as helping the school gain a better understanding of parents’ views and experiences.

Our aims & objectives of the forum are:

  • To advise the school of parental views on specific issues.
  • To give parents a place to learn more about the school.
  • To give the school a place to learn more about the parents.

The forums takes place once a term and the sessions take place at 9am, repeated in the evenings at 5:30pm in the main school hall.

If you are unable to attend any of the sessions and would still like to contribute, please email your comments/ suggestions to admin@horsenden.ealing.sch.uk


SUGAR SMART - key facts and information about sugar

SUGAR SMART is a Sustainable Food Places campaign, coordinated by Sustain, working with organisations, councils, businesses, schools and other sectors to help reduce overconsumption of sugar in their communities.

Even though sugar is such an important issue, it’s surprising how little most of us know about what it actually is, where it comes from, what it does to us and why too much of it is so bad for us. SUGAR SMART are  trying to help children and families consume less sugar, so it can be useful to know a few facts about it. Click here to access their no-nonsense guide to get started.
