Welcome to the First Update of the New School Year
The children have made a wonderful start to the new year and are very settled in their new classes. The teachers are, without exception, delighted!
Here we go:

There have been open meetings for parents and carers at which the school staff team shared important information, took questions and generally enjoyed seeing lots of people in school for the first time since Covid hit. A summary of the content is available here: https://parkdale-primary.co.uk/staff-parent-carer-open-meetings-a-summary/
