Parent involvement

Parents and Carers

The Kingfisher School firmly believe that education is a partnership between school and the home, and therefore parents are welcomed and encouraged to participate in school life in a multitude of different ways. If you have time to spare, you can play a significant role in not only your child’s education, but that of others too.

Your support and help is highly valued by staff, children and governors. All members of staff are readily available to discuss any problems, concerns or ideas that you may have, as we believe that an open approach with good communication between all parties is the only way to success.

Keeping in Touch

Newsletters are sent out fortnightly. This is a means of keeping parents and carers abreast of developments within school and a regular medium for passing on information. On this website you can also find term dates, online diary, events, the weekly menu and newsletter. 

If you need to speak to your child’s teacher, please arrange a meeting time through the school office. It is vital that if you have any worries about your child in school that you approach the class teacher immediately, so that the matter can be dealt with swiftly.

Reading at Home

Children are encouraged to bring books home. Sometimes these books are simply to look at and read together and at other times for your children to read on their own. Please encourage them as much as possible when they bring their reading books home. Book bags which protect the books can be bought from the office – cost £7.50.

Helping in School

We encourage parents and carers to help in school if they have the time available. Any time you can give is worthwhile – from a fixed period of time every week to hear children read to escorting on a school trip once a year. If you have time to help then please contact the school.
