Family School Partnership Award (FSPA)
The Family School Partnership Award supports schools to review their whole school approach to working with families in the widest sense, identify areas where they would like to see positive change and put in place actions to effect this change.
On 15th September 2021, Ms Charles picked up the Family School Partnership Award along with other schools from Ealing, Brent and Harrow. Thank you to all our parents and Carers, staff and governors who completed the FSPA surveys.
Horsenden Primary are working in partnership with Ealing Adult Learning to deliver ESOL classes to our parents and carers. ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) qualifications help learners gain English literacy for use in education, employment and everyday life.
