Kingsgate Primary School

Families and community


Homa Atib
Homa Atib is our Family and Community Co-ordinator.
We build close relationships between home and school because we know that children are happier and learn better if we work well together.

Teachers are busy in the morning but are usually available in the playground after school for a brief chat. If you wish to speak to them for longer, you can make an appointment and they are always pleased to meet with you.

We hold parent/ child/ teacher meetings once or twice a year. The children's main school report is given to parents in February with an update in July.

"The information session was excellent, I have learnt a lot. Thank you. "

"Gill’s display reminded me of my childhood; we had similar game boards when I was a child. I am going to try some with my children. "

"I have learnt how to help my child’s learning through games and activities and have fun at the same time. "

"I can do anything to get my child’s mind off play station. "

"I will definitely invest some money on educational games. "

"This session gave me the confidence to sit with my children and do things together. "

"I would like to try some of the games here before I buy them. My English is not good and I can't read the instruction. It is good if someone shows us how the game works. "

"I would like to thank the school for organising these sessions."

Coffee morning 8th February 2017
Understanding your child's school report

42 mothers and fathers attended the session.
Here is their feedback.
"The information session was excellent. Leanne was fantastic, she explained every step of the report with examples and I have learnt a lot. Please thank her for me."

"It was reassuring when Leanne mentioned the team work and how a team of staff write children's report not only the class teacher. My child got a new teacher this term and I was worried how the new teacher knows my child to write the report."

"It was great to have this information session just before the report, excellent!"

"It was too much information to take in, Why the government had to change the old system."

"I have learnt how to read my child's report or ask the class teacher to explain it to me if I don't understand."

"It is good to know that parents are important for the school as much as the school is important to parents. Thank you"

"Thank you for reminding us again and again to attend the session. Lots of parents have attended, so many questions and answers, it was almost an hour session. Maybe next time run it in the Hall."

"It is good to know what to do with your child at home especially during holidays when the weather is cold. Thank you."

45 mothers and fathers attended the session.
Here is their feedback.
"The information session was brilliant. I have learnt a lot. Thank you."

"Can we (parents) have the copy of the power point please?"

"It was great. I didn't know most of the websites."

"It is good to know what the school is teaching in each year group so we can follow it at home."

"Mary's presentation was great. She was talking slowly and explaining everything and every activity, but it was small writing and hard to see it from the back. Maybe we can sit closer next time."

"Thank you for the hand out, I don't have access to a printer and the hand out is great for me to work with my child. Thanks"

Autumn term 2016 feedback from parents and carers

31 Reception parents attended the "Happy Children, Good Learning" session led by Gill Stone on 21st September 2016. It was a very interactive session with lots of questions and answers.

Feedback from parents:
"The session was excellent; I am pleased that we have a child psychotherapist in our school."

"Can you ask Gill to run one or two sessions with more details please?"

"I am glad I have attended the session. I have met other parents and I have learnt something new."

"Children's happiness is always my priority but being a busy mum, sometimes I rush and forget about it. It is good to have a reminder."

"Things are completely different in my country. We don't think of mental health and how it affects a child's learning."

"I will go to the library to see if I can borrow a book about children learning environment. My child is young but I have to be prepared. "

"I have learnt a lot from the session. I didn't know half of what Gill explained today. Thank you."
