Parents as Partners

At KNGS we really do believe that the successful partnership between home, school and student will support all girls to thrive in all areas, academically and socially. Although parents are welcome to contact us at school whenever they have a concern or question about their daughter’s education throughout Key Stage 3 and 4, they are also be invited to a number of ‘Parents as Partners’ evenings.

Parents as Partners Evenings

Parents as Partners evenings are strategically placed at key transition points within a girl’s school career:

Year 6

As part of the transition programme the Parents as Partners programme will cover:

  • School procedures
  • The KS3 Curriculum
  • How we cater for individual needs
  • How parents can support their daughters to be successful
  • An opportunity to meet staff informally

Year 9

Year 9 is a key point in a girl’s career as she choose her options.

The Parents as Partners evening gives parents the opportunity, with their daughter, to:

  • Find out about the KS4 curriculum
  • Learn how the options process works
  • Explore a range of option subjects by talking to staff
  • Meet with independent careers advisors
  • Understand the options open to girls Post 16, including apprenticeships
  • Find out about what universities are looking for from applicants
  • Learn how to support girls through KS4.

Year 10

Where the Year 9 evening focuses very much on option choices, the Year 10 evening focuses in more detail on English, Maths, Science and Modern Foreign Languages and provides parents with more detailed information on how to support their daughter’s learning.
