Ofsted Visit 

As you are aware, this week we were visited by inspectors from Ofsted. 

As always, we cannot share the outcome until the report is published in a few weeks time. 

We would like to say a big thank you to all of the parents that took the time to complete the Parent View questionnaire that was sent out earlier this week or spoke to inspectors on the school gate. We love getting feedback from our families and we are very proud knowing we have such supportive parents and families working with us to make CTK what it is. 

One suggestion that was bought up in parent feedback, was that there was a lack of seating at the front of school! Rest assured that we have taken note of this and have started planning on how to make our outside area more comfortable for parents at drop-off and pick up times! Watch this space! 

Thank you once again for continuing to support us. 

Medal Winner! 

During the Easter break, Miss Owers travelled to France to take part in the Paris Marathon! 

She joined 54,000 other people for the run and completed it in just under 4 and a half hours! 

When SATs are out of the way, Year 6 will be learning how far a marathon is and then try to see if they can collectively beat her time! 

We're sure you'll join us in shouting a huge CONGRATULATIONS for her fantastic achievement! Well done Miss Owers!! 

Meetings with Staff 

If you require a meeting with your child's class teacher or another member of staff, this is always something we're happy to arrange, however staff are not always available at a moments notice so would like to ask that you make an appointment with the school office. 

If you attend a meeting, and need to bring someone with you, record the meeting for your records, or have another person attend by telephone, we are always more than happy to accomodate this. We do however ask that you inform us of this beforehand for transparency and the safety of our own pupils and staff. 

Reception Class September 2024 

Emails have been sent out by the Local Authority with offers of Reception Class places for September 2024. 

If you have applied for a place for your child in September, please be sure to accept the offered place through the email - the deadline to accept school places is Tuesday 30th April. 

If you are having difficulty accepting the place via email, please speak to Miss Morse in the school office who will be happy to support you with this.

Collecting Children Early 

Please can we remind parents and carers that they should not be arriving to collect children early without informing the school office before hand. Where possible, we do ask that appointments are made outside of the school day. 

Please be aware that there may be certain times of the school day where children are taking part in activities that they cannot be removed from (for example assemblies or church visits). If you arrive to collect your child during these times, and we were not expecting you, children will not be released until the activity is finished. 

Parking and Dropping Off 

Unfortunately, we once again need to remind parents about parking during drop off and pick up times. 

Parents and Carers should not be parking on the zig-zag lines under any circumstances. Not only is it extremely dangerous, as it obstructs the view of other road users and pedestrians, it is also illegal, and drivers caught parking in these areas will be reported to our local community policing team. 

Parents and Carers should also not be stopping in the road and allowing children to jump out of the car. 

There is plenty of parking available on Filwood Broadway allowing parents to safely walk their children in to school. 

Thank you for your co-operation with this matter and supporting us to keep all of our children safe. 

Do you have our school app yet? 

The School Gateway app is the best (and cheapest) way to stay in touch with us here at CTK. 

Not only can it be used to book children into clubs, it's also a great messaging service. 

Text messages, whilst useful, cost us a lot of money to send and we're sure you agree, we'd rather spend our budget on more resources and opportunities for our children.  So, going forward, we're going to utilise the app more, to avoid sending as many text messages. 

If you've not yet downloaded the app, you can find it on GooglePlay and the App Store under School Gateway. Here's a handy guide to get you started....


Without the app, you might miss important information going forward, so we strongly encourage all parents to sign up - it's completely free and a great way to stay in touch!!
