Parents & Carers
At Knockhall Primary School, we believe that strong, effective relationships with parents and carers is in the best interests of our children. We understand that our parents and carers know their child best; what engages and motivates them, their strengths, passions and interests. By combining parents’ knowledge of their child with staff’s expertise in teaching and learning, we can ensure the best outcomes for our children.
Our school values the relationship it holds with children and their families, as well as the wider community, and actively seeks to provide opportunities for these relationships to flourish. We seek to involve parents and carers in their children’s learning and education by sharing information about the curriculum that they are participating in. As part of the curriculum philosophy, parents and carers are invited to help celebrate a new topic by preparing for Big Bang Days, sharing a curriculum overview which sets out a term’s learning and, ending in a celebration of learning whereby parents and carers are invited into the school for a showcase of the children’s learning towards the end of term.
We encourage parents and carers to tell us what support they feel they need and aim to provide information, whether through our newsletter, curriculum overviews or workshops. Furthermore, parent consultation evenings provide an opportunity for parents and carers to learn more about their child/ren’s social/emotional and learning progress throughout the academic year.
We welcome parent/carer’s who may wish to further support the work of the school through volunteering in the classroom or outside – whether this be one-to-one reading, school trips, supporting in Forest School or one-off activities. For any parents/carers wishing to be more involved, our Community Liaison Officer (CLO) would be delighted to work with you and hear from anyone wishing to get involved.
If you would like to enquiry about supporting the school, you can contact our school office or use the enquiry form on our Contact Us page.
We are looking for parents, teachers and friends to become actively involved in our school.
Our Parents, Teacher and Friends Association is formed of parent/carer volunteers who will always be ready to welcome new members. They work in partnership with the Headship Team and our Community Liaison Officer in order to raise funds to support the school.
Previous events and initiatives include Christmas and Summer fetes, inflatables days, discos and many more events to raise money to support the school. All funds are reinvested back into our school and are made possible by the team who volunteer their time.
We look forward to sharing more events and initiatives soon – if you have any ideas or would like to be part of the PTFA, please get in touch with our Community Liaison Officer or use the enquiry form on our Contact Us page.
