Parents

Parents and Carers

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the information below is currently incorrect. If you would like any information please contact the school directly.

We hope you find this information helpful in introducing you to Christ the King School. You are welcome to visit the school and discuss in detail the kind of education we can offer your child.

At Christ the King we welcome and encourage parental interest. Goodwill and a spirit of co-operation must exist between home and school and it is essential that your child sees this partnership working well. We seek excellence in all we do and strive to enable your child to reach his or her full potential not only academically but as a whole person.

We are a Catholic school. It is our faith which binds us together in all our activities. We grow in faith through Prayer, Teaching and Worship.

We hope that your child will be happy and successful with us and that you will become involved in the very busy life of the school.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Catherine Greaves, Chair of Governors
Mrs Nichola Potts, Headteacher

Attendance

Regular and punctual attendance at school are habits your child should be encouraged to form.   Latecomers disturb both teacher and classmates.

An Inventry system is used to manage attendance and punctuality. School begins at 8.50am.  Children arriving after this time must be signed in by their parents at the office and register the reason for their lateness.

Arrival after 8.50am will be recorded as a late mark. 

Parents of children absent from school must send in a parentapp message or leave a message on the school answerphone stating the reason for absence.

If your child has a medical appointment during school hours he or she will only be released to authorised adults and you will need to log your child out using the Inventry screen  located at the School Office.

You can download a copy of our attendance policy from the Policies and Documents page.

 

School Meals

We have our own school kitchen and midday meals are provided for all children who wish to have them. A cafeteria system operates with a choice menu from Citywide Catering provider.
 
The food menu and weekly rotation dates are on our website under 'mailings'.
 
Citywide Catering can provide you with information on food content if you need to discuss your concern about your child's meal and potential allergies.

All dinner money is paid using Parent Pay and Citywide Catering set the minimum limit on the Parent Pay accounts.

If your child is eligible for free school meals, please contact Salford Free School Meal Department. Please see 'link' on this website for contact information.

Currently, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive Universal Free School Meals.

Please do complete the yellow Free School Meal forms that are sent home annually as this would financially benefit the School if you are successful.

Children may bring a packed lunch to School. Two weeks' notice is required by Citywide Catering if your child wishes to change from dinners to packed lunches as stock orders will require adjustment.

 

Facilities

There is a large playground and a field with a wealth of shrubbery and hedging which provides a good stimulus for outdoor study.  A daily mile track wraps around the field. There is attractive bench seating, a large tyre play area, themed play areas, including an Outdoor Theatre, Tinkology area and a large wooden Chapel.

Sports

In an effort to promote healthy living and an active lifestyle, we encourage children to participate in a wide range of sporting activities: Football, Swimming, Netball, Cross Country and Athletics. At KS2, the children participate in inter-house sporting events and many inter-school competitions within the city.

Music

Children in KS2 have the opportunity of learning a musical instrument. Peripatetic teachers visit school from the Music and Performing Arts Service (MAPAS) and provide tuition for a range of musical instruments including: violin, drums, flute, guitar, recorder and clarinet. Further details are available from the School Business Manager.
