Kings Heath Primary Academy

Everything we do is based on the highest expectations of the children, staff and the parents - as well as behaviour, commitment and endeavour.

Parent Information

At Kings Heath Primary Academy we value our close partnership with parents.

The three-way link between home, school and the child is crucial to all children achieving their maximum potential.

By working together we can ensure a happy, successful primary school career. We value the support of parents and offer a range of activities and social activities to strengthen our partnership.

We use lots of different ways to communicate with parents, such My Child at School (MCAS). This is where you will find out lots of information about things which are happening at school, such as work the children have been doing, their achievements, special events, celebrations, dates for your diary and general information about the day to day life of the school. We also share leaflets and information on local issues and events.

In addition to this, the Pastoral Team also hold parent drop ins to help families access internet support for ordering their lunches and arranging delivery of uniforms. Additional parental engagements include:

  • Adult learning 
  • Mums and Tots
  • Parenting support classes
  • Zumba
  • Help with accessing food banks / other social services

Parents play a crucial role in supporting their children’s learning, and levels of parental engagement are consistently associated with better academic outcomes. At Kings Heath Primary Academy, we use information and suggestions from the below toolkit that suggests that effective parental engagement can lead to learning gains of +3 months over the course of a year.
