In December 2020 Christ the King was awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award again. The assessor's report stated that:
The commitment and recognition of the importance and impact of parental involvement is clearly demonstrated.
Provision for parents with an ethos of supporting and involving parents continues to be embedded in school practice both in strategic planning and practice.
The school has a wide range of strategies to help parents support their child’s learning and to support the whole family, adapting these to meet the needs of families during the pandemic.
Communication strongly supports home school links in various forms, reaching out to parents.
