Family Learning in Surrey



Family Learning is funded provision run in partnership with schools and usually on school premises. It aims to engage with and improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils and their families.

Family Learning results in a wide range of benefits for children, families and schools: helps to close the attainment gap; improves parental engagement in children's learning; improves pupil behaviour and raises aspirations of children and families.

If a school would like to work with Family Learning to engage with families that they feel would benefit from this funded provision they need to contact by phone or email one of the Assistant Curriculum Managers who will arrange to visit the school and plan a programme together.

We will require the school to provide a suitable room/s for learning, a point of contact in the school and to actively engage and recruit the families for the Family Learning courses. Family Learning provide marketing materials, fully qualified tutors and the resources for the courses..

Surrey Education in Partnership



Sustainable and inclusive schools-led education
National education policy and funding changes are transforming education and driving the transition to a schools-led system.

This journey will see roles, responsibilities, lines of accountability and funding arrangements changing. Through the Education in Partnership (EiP) programme, the council is working with education providers and other stakeholders.

Annual report to the

Like all years one tends to write the Chair’s Report at the last few days before the AGM often in the hope that something exciting will happen. This year has been something of an exception, the Chair’s Report has been written in the last few days but not in the hope that something interesting would turn up but because so much has been going on of late, that it was again left to burning much midnight oil over the last few nights. When I set out to recall the year apart from my diary, my planner and my meeting notes I have had a quick look at last year’s Report to see how and where we have moved forward. Read more...
