The aim of this joint initiative is to support families wishing to become more involved in their children's education and schooling, by making a fund available for projects on various themes.
The functioning of the FPP is intended to be simple and flexible in order to allow an effective realization of projects on the perimeter of the Cité éducative.

Two main objectives of the FPP

  • To allow parents to propose projects with an educational aim, during school time (under the aegis of the pedagogical team) and after school (under the full responsibility of the parents).
  • Encourage the emergence of parents' needs and respond to them.

The proposed projects can address various themes (health, sports, culture, prevention and fight against violence and harassment, inclusion, education for sustainable development, parent/school link....) and propose actions involving children (outings, workshops ...) or involving only parents (conferences, workshops, exchange groups ...).

A jury of partners validates the projects after hearing the parents.
The APS association is in charge of the program. The organization assists the parents in setting up the actions and manages the funds.

On Friday, November 18, a jury of partners validated the first FPP project, led by parents of Excelsior elementary school.
The objective is both participative (to bring parents into the school), artistic (production of a collective work) and decorative.
