The School Day

Please remember that the school gate is open from 08:30. You can bring children in from 08:30 which gives you a better chance of being on time for school.

Governing Body Vacancy

We still have two vacancies for parent governors on your governing body. This is a great chance to hep Parkwood to be a better school and to have your say in how the school is run. Please contact  for information or applications. Closing date Friday 31st March.

Comic Relief

Thank you to everyone who brought in and then purchased toys for the Comic Relief Toy Swap. We raised over £75 for Comic Relief. It was also fantastic to see how many children wore red on Friday. We are still counting the money raised and will announce the amount next week.

Strike Closure

School will be closed to children on Thursday 30th March due to strike action by the NUT relating to concerns over school funding. School will be open as usual on the Friday 31st.

Class Photographs

Class photograph proofs will be handed out today, please can you get your photograph orders in by Tuesday 18th April. 

FOP News

Thank you all for supporting this week's Toy Share/ Swap on Thursday and Friday's Red Nose Day, where we all helped to raise much needed funds for children everywhere and got to enjoy choosing a toy, wearing red or have some cake!

Further ahead, keep an eye out for Yr 1, Nursery and Yr 3 fundraisers end of April and in May, let us or your class/ class rep know if you can help out.

We now have a Friends of Parkwood What’s App group, if you would like to join it too (you can leave when you want to and ‘mute’ the notifications), please text Laura your name and number on 07909591898 or e-mail us.

This year, our Summer Fair will be held on Sat 1st July and we need all the help we can get! Let us know what stall you would like to (help) run or how you can help out with preparations.
