Fast  Families And Schools Together


The fast programme was completed in St. John`s in the Autumn term 2015.

It’s a programme that has been operated worldwide for several years and is funded by Save The Children.

The programme helps to

  • Promote more positive relationships within families.

  • Improve children’s educational performance.

  • Strengthen links between parents and teachers.

Parents are empowered.

Children’s experiences and achievements are enriched.

School gets to know families on a more personal level.

The programme lasts for 8 weeks with weekly sessions of 2 and a half hours.

It is school-based but parent-lead.


Comments from parents who took part in FAST:


“it helped give me confidence and make new friends”.

“So glad I had the opportunity to be part of this programme”.

“Very worthwhile.”

“Super, great atmosphere.”


A fastworks group has grown out of this programme and parents meet on a monthly basis to organise activities and “Days out”.
