We are holding a STEM week in school during the week 26th-30th January, where the children will learn about how Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths are used in their world.
Our theme this year is “Farm to Fork” and we are very lucky to have links with Tesco who have invited 300 children up to the store to help them to understand where food comes from. Children will visit in accordance with the timetable below. They will be able to “sniff, touch, make and taste their way through the intriguing world of food”. Back at school, the children will be investigating how Science influences everyday objects such as bags, cups and spoons. They will be using food as a resource – creating, cooking or just tasting it.
Parkland Primary school is considering opening a pre-school for 3 and 4 year olds in September 2015. We would like to ask you to complete the following questionnaire to help us develop our provision for your children. We value your opinions and hope you can return the completed questionnaire by Friday January 23rd. Thank you
I write to invite you to meet with your child’s class teacher to discuss progress, review targets, share concerns and agree future priorities. The dates for these meetings are:
Tuesday 3rd February 4.00pm – 7.30pm
Thursday 5th February 3.30pm – 6.00pm
Please complete and return the slip below to your child’s teacher, and they will arrange an appointment for you. If your child has support from another teacher we will automatically make an appointment with them as well. I will also be available to any parent who needs to speak to me.
There is a vacancy for a parent governor on the governing body at Parkland Primary School, I would like to invite parents who are interested in taking up this role to put their names forward. It is a requirement of the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2007 that these vacancies are filled by election.
The parents of registered pupils at the school elect parent governors. The definition of parent includes any person having all the rights, duties, powers, responsibility and authority which a parent of a child has by law, or who has care of him or her. Depending on the circumstances, therefore, a “parent” may include not only a child’s natural parents but also others such as step-parents, relatives, co-habitees of either natural parents, carers and foster parents.
Governing bodies are responsible for a wide range of matters, which include ensuring that pupils receive high quality education and planning for the future development and improvement of the school. Parent governors play an important role as members of the governing body and are welcomed as valued members of the team. They play a vital role in ensuring the governing body is aware of the views of parents and the local community.
