At Ark Kings Academy, we know how important it is for home and school to work together to give every child the best chance of fulfilling their potential. We encourage parents and staff to work together in lots of different ways. These range from regular communication between you and your child's class teacher to inviting you to take part in fun, informative learning sessions at school with your child. One of the ways you as a parent can support your child is by helping them to practise at home the things they are learning in school.
