Parent Essentials

School Uniform

School uniform is compulsory for all pupils at all Kings’ Schools. The uniform changes as children go through the school, and is designed to encourage our youngest children to feel independent and our older children to feel a sense of pride in their appearance. For the full list of uniform requirements, please see: School Uniform


School lunches are provided at an additional cost by Dish catering. For Primary students, parents can sign up and pay in advance for the term. The lunches are healthy, nutritious and freshly made each day. Menus are available on Communicator for our existing parents.

Secondary students will have access to a state of the art canteen, with a fantastic daily selection of healthy, nutritious food. The canteen will operate a cash system. Menus are available on Communicator for our current parents.

A sample of which can be found here.

All children must bring a snack and a water bottle to school each day.

Kings’ Schools promote healthy eating, and we encourage parents to help us in our aim. When providing a packed lunch, please include only healthy food choices. The following items are not allowed in packed lunches: sweets, chocolate, crisps, nuts and carbonated drinks. Please review our healthy eating policy.

School Communication

The main way that Kings’ Schools communicate with parents is via The Kings’ Communicator. Parents must download this free app to their mobile or computer (go to and follow the instructions in the Schools section) to enable them to stay in touch with all school updates. The Kings’ Communicator is used to share key dates for the calendar, weekly newsletters, photographs and daily updates. For quick links to Communicator and other tools visit our Parent Portal page.

In addition, each child from FS2 upwards has their own Communication Book, which comes home every day with messages linked to your child’s learning. Please do check this every night, and we encourage parents to respond with messages of their own as part of the partnership between school and parents regarding children’s learning.

Each class also has one or two parents who are the class link(s). The class links communicate with other parents on class-specific information and out-of-school activities for the class or parents, as well as providing a fail-safe emergency contact pyramid.

Parent Portal

Parents can also access online information specific to their child, such as school reports, attendance records and fees information, via our Parent Portal. You will need be provided with a username and password upon joining. In addition, Early Essence is an online system for Early Years Foundation Stage which enables parents to track their child's progress and attainment. For more information on all parent tools visit our Parent Portal page.
