Family Information

We recognise that your child’s journey will be a little different to children in a mainstream school/college, therefore we try and involve families as much as possible to keep them informed about their child’s time in school and the progress they are making.


We also want families to feel welcome and part of our school community. These are some of the ways we will do this: 


  • Parents/carers have daily contact via home-school diaries/class dojo.
  • Every term a copy of the pupil’s/student’s personal goals is sent home with suggestions of ways support can be given at home. Parents/ carers are encouraged to contribute to these. 
  • Tapestry is an online learning journal which is used across school to share pupil progress with parents/carers, who are also able to contribute to this. 
  • Parents/carers are invited to meetings to discuss their child’s progress including an EHCP meeting and parent’s evening. 
  • Regular contact is made between home and school through telephone calls. 
  • Parents/carers are invited into school regularly for events including special events in class, enterprise events, performances or assemblies.  
  • Every fortnight there is a coffee afternoon for our parents/carers support group ‘KTS Family Links’. This will often have a focus e.g. Makaton, behaviour support. 
  • We have regular events after school where the whole family are welcome, e.g. school discos, bingo. 
  • Our 'Make and Bake' pathways students run a cafe every Friday morning and you are welcome to visit.
