Parent/Staff

Since a group of parents founded the school in 1898, parental involvement has played a vital role at King Alfred School. Parents are actively welcomed into the community and their support for the school and its aims is invaluable.

Parent/Staff Association is an organisation formed by the parents and carers of the students of King Alfred School and the management and staff of the School.

The Parent Staff Association aims to:

  • provide opportunities for parents and carers to interact with staff and each other;
  • organise events for the school community;
  • support the school through fundraising initiatives;
  • act as a link between King Alfred School families and the school’s senior leadership team.

Parent/Staff is involved in numerous ways throughout the school. From organising large scale fundraising events such as our annual Firework display and the KAStonbury summer fair to providing refreshments for our concerts or helping out with Lower School Christmas parties.  There is something for everyone to get involved with and new ideas are always welcome.

We hold meetings once each term to which everyone is welcome, and at which the senior leadership team is well represented.

Parent/Staff is run by a committee led by the Chair and supported by the Treasurer and Secretary.

Parent Representatives

We have at least one or more volunteer Parent/Staff Representatives for each class in the Lower School.  They communicate regularly between the class teachers and parents, organise fundraising events such as the weekly Friday Cafe and generally become involved in the life of the school.

The King Alfred School Parent/Staff has a huge amount to offer. We look forward to welcoming you into our thriving and busy community.
