The School Day

Classes start at 08:45.  Please ensure that your child is here BEFORE 08:45. The school gates are open from 08:30 so there is no reason to be late. Late arrivals disrupt the learning of your child and others. Please respect our school day.

Happy New Year

It is great to see everyone back in school and ready to learn. Thank you to all parents for giving children a lovely break and keeping them safe over the holidays.

Free Dance Places

‘Perform’ the group who run dance classes at Parkwood on the weekend, are offering FIVE FREE PLACES at their dance club on Saturday morning from 11:15-12:45. If your child is interested in joining a weekend dance club, contact perform to arrange a FREE PLACE.


Clubs start again from Monday 9th January. There are some clubs that will be starting week beginning 16 January so look at the dates carefully. Make sure that you get your child signed up ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a restful break.

The year starts with allocating the money we raised to different projects within the school.

The bids committee meets to decide on grants next Friday 13th January after assembly.

Other dates for your diary include the Japanese music performance happening in school on Thursday 19th January at 2.30pm. Children's tickets are just £1 and adults £2. This event has been organised specifically to raise money so that the breakfast club can continue free of charge.
