Teaching and non-teaching staff will offer the best guidance to pupils as they grow and develop in the school.
For younger pupils the class teacher and teaching assistant are the initial points of contact for help and advice, either through their class teaching or on an individual basis. Our dedicated pastoral leader ensures all pupil’s needs are planned for and met through the curriculum and assembly programme. The school has a counsellor who works with pupils individually and in groups to support their emotional and academic development. The school identifies areas of need in pupils and then as a team we support them to overcome any issues.
Staff training ensures that students are given the best possible advice, and our programme is supplemented by visitors and experts who work with staff and children to support their learning.
School, Family and The Community
School, family and the community
As a basic principle, King’s College actively encourages effective communication between school and parents. “We endeavour to involve parents fully in the education of their children and see this partnership as an essential aspect of our care for every individual.
Opportunities for effective communication and participation exist in a wide variety of forms. On a collective level there is a regular flow of information to parents and students via newsletters, calendars of events and personal email.
We provide opportunities for our families to engage in learning through family learning mornings and we invite parents officially to meet individually with the class teacher once a term to discuss children’s progress. We actively encourage parental involvement with homework and even have a regular family homework task that we call “Talk Homework!”
