Reporting to parents

Your first point of contact with the school is the Pastoral Tutor, Co-Pastoral Tutor or Director of Learning. Your child will be able to tell you who this is. If you have any need to communicate with the school you should contact them by letter, phone or email.

Whilst we meet with you formally at least once per year at a parents’ event we also publish meeting times throughout the school year when parents are invited to special events. These are on Wednesdays and are called Working Together Wednesdays. In addition, we will let you know every 12 weeks how well your child is doing in school by sending you a short report which details:

  • What standard (level or GCSE grade) your child is currently achieving.
  • Their overall attendance.

Working Together Wednesdays

2.30 – 4.00pm

We know at Ark All Saints that the relationship between home and academy needs to be strong and positive if our scholars are to achieve their potential.

We understand that the move from KS2 to KS3 can be as daunting for parents as it can be for scholars and will provide opportunities for parents to learn about a range of topics that are relevant to families with teenagers.

We aim to run one session every term in which parents are invited to attend events.

We will provide information events on difficult subjects such as safer internet usage, social media guidelines, the curriculum and how choices will affect their families later on in life, finance and university.

We are also inviting key speakers from the community to these events such as the police, to assist us with issues such as keeping our children safe.

We also run learning sessions on KS3 English, Maths and Science so that parents feel better prepared to support their children’s learning at home.

We are an academy that listens –we want to hear our parent’s voices and will provide events that suit the needs of our families.
