Headteacher’s Newsletter – Friday 18th March 2022 – Spring 10
THERE HAS BEEN 1 RECORDED CASES OF CORONAVIRUS REPORTED AT PARKSIDE COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL THIS WEEK
There are very few weeks in the academic year when everything seems to click but this week was one of those weeks. Over the past few days I have met with teachers, governors, parents and carers, our school improvement partner but most importantly I have spent a lot of time with the children this week. Every interaction was a celebration of the hard work and excellent standards we have at the school. The highlight of the week had to be the glowing tributes staff and children received during the school’s annual review which was carried out by Kelly Moss our improvement partner. She was very impressed by the progress the school has made (and continues to make) over the past 12 months; teaching, learning and safeguarding continues to be GOOD. It really is a pleasure to come to work every day and to lead such a wonderful community. You should feel very proud of your child’s achievements because I know everyone at the school does!! Please continue to support the school in all that we do.
The word of the week is ‘PHILOCALY‘ – the love of beauty, and the ability to cherish small things in life.

FOOD WASTE – This week there was 18.7 kgs of waste which equated to 25 grammes per child. Whilst this was a little higher than last week it still represents a very good effort by the children. Each class was set a target amount of food they were allowed to throw away and I am incredibly pleased to say that NO classes went over their target. THIS WEEK’S TARGET FOR THE WHOLE SCHOOL WILL BE 20kgs
